    Uniquely us

    Education Central is a social enterprise wholly owned by the University of Wolverhampton. As part of the Institute of Education, Education Central provides a broad range of school improvement services for schools, academies, local authorities and other organisations. Most of our work is bespoke, providing in-school support for leadership and quality of teaching. We are delighted to have been a part of so many positive stories and to have this work recognised by Ofsted and HMI but most importantly by those we have the pleasure of working with, many year after year. As a social enterprise, our costs are significantly lower than many expect for the high quality service we provide.



    A different kind of CPD

    Our bespoke school improvement work is the cornerstone of what we do. Through our dedicated teaching and learning team we are able to work with schools to provide relevant, specifically designed INSET and, most importantly, follow this up in school. Team teaching, planning and reflection allow us to ‘show not tell’ and have repeatedly helped teachers to realise their potential and flourish, growing in confidence and enhancing their skills. Many leaders repeatedly return to us to help them move on to the next stage of their school development.



    Impact and inspiration

    Each year we offer a number of courses to enhance teaching and learning. These courses include a number of programmes delivered over an extended period, such as our NQT, Embedding Good Teaching and Developing Excellent Early Years programmes. We also offer a range of short courses focussing on specific topics such as Mastering Mathematics at KS1 or Questioning and Higher Level Thinking. Last year over 80% of evaluations rated these courses excellent with 100% rating them good or better.



    Inspiring learning

    Our programme of events takes groups of pupils to venues across the West Midlands for some fantastic experiences. Whether it be applying geography and mathematical skills to solve a problem at a Jaguar Land Rover workshop or being taught specific painting skills by an artist in the Wolverhampton Art Gallery. Each event inspires, encourages collaboration, promotes reasoning and ensures pupils thoroughly enjoy learning outside the classroom.



    Ready to teach

    Each year we run an NQT pool for our partners in Wolverhampton and Sandwell, seeking to secure highly motivated and effective teachers. The application and interview process are simple and have provided a great route to the first teaching job for hundreds of teachers. Applications for the pool for 2018-19 open on 26th October 2018.
