About the organisation
Education Development Trust designed and mobilised the programme in 2015 with the objective not simply to produce more teachers, but to produce extremely talented teachers that are educated in their subject to a high level.

The small central team at Education Development Trust works alongside a network of teaching schools across the country. Tasked with identifying and recruiting the candidates as well as delivering on all aspects of the scholars' journey, our methodology is to enlist students prior to the start of their undergraduate course, targeting gifted A-level students with high predicted grades who will go on to study maths or physics at university.
