With Grateful Thanks to our Supporters, Partners & Sponsors

A message from our Chair

The Foundation for Education Development are wholly committed to promoting a long-term vision and plan for education in England, but we couldn’t achieve our objectives without the help and guidance from our supporters, partners and sponsors. Their commitment to the project is greatly appreciated by all of our trustees and Council members and we thank them for their valuable contribution.

We also pride ourselves on helping our clients do what is fundamentally right for their learners and institutions.

As one of the largest education teams in the country our legal and HR specialists have a wealth of education knowledge and experience.
