School Improvement Provider Of The Year 2018 - TT Education

We're delighted to announce that we have scooped a prestigious national award for our work with schools. The Education Investor Awards is an internationally recognised awards ceremony for companies working in the education sector. We were ecstatic to have won the coveted ‘Best School Improvement Provider’ trophy.

Our Managing Director, David Maytham, was thrilled to receive the award:

“I started TT Education with company Chairman, Graham Keene, five years ago. From personal experience, and from feedback from many teachers, we knew that the quality of professional development training available to existing primary school teachers was patchy at best. We were determined to provide teachers with the quality of training and Professional Development that they deserve.

The aim of TT Education was always a moral one – to support schools and teachers and ensure they are able to provide a superior quality of education to the children in their care. That hasn’t changed, despite all the challenges of working in a market that has seen budget cuts year on year.

From an idea on a piece of paper, it’s grown to a team of over forty consultants, supported by a fantastic head office team of thirteen. I’m so proud of the work we’ve done and of the amazing team we’ve built."

Our entry for these awards highlighted the progress we've made over the past 12 months ...

Expansion of our School Improvement services:

  • Over recent years, TT Education has made its first steps into the International market for school CPD, working with schools in mainland Europe, the Middle East and China. In March 2018, we attended the British Schools in the Middle East event in Abu Dhabi (UAE). We have since delivered training to the Doha International School (Qatar) and a number of other International schools have attended our CPD training events in the United Kingdom. We now work across the UK and internationally, providing continued professional development training and consultancy for primary school teachers, both in the state and independent sectors.

  • We continue to make sure that the CPD courses, INSET days and school improvement consultancy services we provide are of the very highest quality. Yet again this year, we’re proud to be able to say that over 90% of teachers and leaders that have attended our CPD training have rated their experience as “Excellent”.

“An absolutely superb course, full of practical and inspiring ideas for school improvement at a personal level. The course leader was clear, knowledgeable and very easy to engage with.” Kim Blythe, Deputy Head, St Johns CE Primary, Reading

“It was terrific! Fast-paced and so well structured for instant use! Almost too many great ideas that you could start in your class tomorrow!” Jennie Phillips, Headmistress, Monmouth Pre-prep & Nursery

“This was simply an excellent CPD course. The activities and philosophy behind it was excellent and the delivery was outstanding.” Charlie Jones, English Lead, Langney Primary

  • We have delivered outstanding CPD to more teachers than the previous year, by adapting to a fast-changing educational environment. In 2017/18 we have worked with over 20,000 teachers, thereby influencing outcomes for the 700,000+ children they teach.

  • We re-packaged our Consultancy Services to provide a choice of "ready-made" solutions for schools seeking support in specific areas such as data analysis, early years, English or maths. We continue to offer tailored, bespoke consultancy services to schools to meet their exact requirements.
