EDSK

EDSK is an independent non-partisan think tank that designs new and better ways for policymakers and educators to help every learner succeed – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our research covers primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, apprenticeships, technical education and universities.

EDSK’s main focus is publishing reports that describe the barriers which are preventing learners from reaching their full potential, as well as discussing how these issues should be resolved – either by government or by those institutions such as schools, colleges and universities who support learners every day.

Our evidence-based recommendations take a ‘systems change’ approach, meaning that we typically put forward a package of reforms that can be implemented over several years. We also work closely with a range of individuals and organisations to ensure that our research reflects a wide range of evidence on any given issue.
