The Education Space - Lead sponsor

The Education Space is transforming education – offering services our schools need to start looking to the future.

We’re giving our education system access to innovative ideas and up-to-date thinking. We’re creating conversations about what a modern classroom should look like, and taking a fresh look at the skills our students are going to need when they leave school.

It’s time to make education relevant, inspiring, and imaginative – so we can prepare children for the future.
