ImpactEd is a social enterprise that exists to improve pupil outcomes by addressing the evaluation deficit in education. They support organisations, schools and Trusts to evaluate their impact, learn from it and ensure their resources are working in the best possible way for young people.

Working with over 1,000 schools, both through direct partnerships and collaboration with MATs and education providers across the country, they are empowering schools to maximise their impact for all pupils.

The CPD partnership between the Chartered College of Teaching and ImpactEd offers schools and leaders a platform to better evaluate the impact of their in-school interventions to improve outcomes for young people, helping to close the “evaluation deficit”. ImpactEd are able to direct senior leaders engaging with their platform towards gaining recognition through the Certificate in Education Research and Inquiry unit for Chartered Teacher (Leadership) Status.
