The Department for Education is responsible for children’s services and education, including early years, schools, higher and further education policy, apprenticeships and wider skills in England.

Their vision is to provide world-class education, training and care for everyone, whatever their background. It will make sure that everyone has the chance to reach their potential, and live a more fulfilled life. It will also create a more productive economy, so that our country is fit for the future.



Our charity’s mission is to raise the profile of the teaching profession, highlight the positive impact teachers & school leaders have in our society – with pupils, parents and the wider community, and show teachers how much they are valued. We do this together through the annual Pearson National Teaching Awards and the Thank A Teacher campaign
