Education Development Trust
Education Development Trust transform lives by improving education around the world. We have first-rate credentials in providing services that bridge the gap between education, training and employment and have been a leading careers service provider in the UK for over 20 years.
Education Development Trust have been delivering the National Careers Service in the North East on behalf of the UK government since 2004. We are currently the prime contractor for the National Careers Service in the North-East & Cumbria, and Yorkshire and Humber areas. Our work in the North East has been graded as Outstanding in our most recent Ofsted inspection and we look forward to achieving a great result when Yorkshire is inspected too.
After delivering the National Careers Service successfully across the South from 2015-2018, we now operate as a lead partner & subcontractor for the National Careers Service in the South East and South West, encompassing Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and parts of Devon, Cornwall & Somerset. We provide world-class careers advice and guidance to more than 100,000 adults annually in a diverse range of community and custodial settings.
In addition to our National Careers Service portfolio, we also operate a bespoke traded service offer in London, the North East, and South East providing careers advice to local authorities, schools and colleges as well as organising work experience and delivering pupil destination data management solutions to our clients. Our best-in-class assessment centre also offers Level 4 and Level 6 Careers Information Advice and Guidance qualifications.
Our advisers are qualified to a minimum of Level 4 in their respective fields, and many of them hold Level 6 Careers Guidance qualifications or higher. We provide our teams with a comprehensive programme of continuing professional development and excellent support from dedicated labour market intelligence, quality assurance and digital and social media specialists; all of which is used to great effect by the advisory team in securing positive job and learning outcomes for our customers and clients.
Ed Dev Trust Careers are excited to partner with the Institute of Employability Professionals. Understanding the intrinsic link between Careers Advice & Employability and the effect this has on both social mobility and the UK economy, this partnership helps us to further bridge the gap between expert careers advice & guidance and positive skills, learning and job outcomes.
