About Us

National Schools Partnership is the Business of Inspirational Learning. We help organisations successfully reach and engage with young people, schools, community groups and families.

We are experts in both the formal and informal education sectors. We have a deep understanding of how young people learn and the roles and links between teachers, parents and schools.

Since 2004 we’ve been using our experience and expertise to help well-known brands, charities and public sector organisations. We’ve delivered over 215 successful learning programmes involving almost every school in the UK and several million young people.

Education enriches lives

And we know how much education matters. Education helps develop society and the economy. It enriches lives and provides possibilities for young people, employees and employers.

We combine educational expertise, consumer marketing skills and an understanding of the most effective way to engage with young people and schools. As a result, we can help you deliver learning strategies that focus on behavioural change, youth development and education.

Further your goals

With our detailed understanding of what matters most to decision makers and the wider education sector, we’ll help you develop programmes that not only benefit pupils and teachers, but also further your marketing, social and community objectives.

We have an accredited programme delivery process. National Schools Partnership was granted re-certification by the ISO in a Surveillance Audit (code: 9001:2008) on 21st December 2015, and is ICO registered (registration number: 186629)

Attractive to educators

The learning initiatives we develop are exciting, creative and attractive to educationalists. We have close links with our panel of more than 1,100 practitioners and experts, as well as 25 specialist associates. Their expertise helps us add extra innovation and insight to your projects.

We can help you successfully promote your initiatives too. Over 58,000 teachers already trust us to provide tools that enhance their pupils’ learning experiences.

Beyond the school gates

Learning doesn’t stop at the school gates. It continues at home, at play and throughout our lives. So we extend the value of programmes with tools like social networks, community programmes, organisational websites and employee engagement. Helping people develop increases their confidence and their perception of your organisation.

Fresh, exciting and effective

Continual innovation is what helps us to ensure that the programmes we develop are always fresh, exciting and effective. We never forget how important education is and the positive impact it can have on a young person. Our work matters and when we do it well, children, families, teachers and our customers all benefit.

Who We Work With

Who_we_work_with

Over the past decade we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the biggest corporate and non-commercial organisations in the UK and the world. We’ve helped brands like Marks & Spencer, Sky, Nike, L’Oreal and Birds Eye. We’ve aided charities and public sector organisations like Breast Cancer Campaign, the British Council, VSO and the National Literacy Trust. And we’ve assisted dozens of other companies – whatever their size and scale – to create inspirational learning programmes.

With such a diverse range of clients it’s not surprising that no two projects are the same. You wouldn’t expect them to be. But whatever your objective – whether it is to drive social change, recruit future talent, promote a product or service, generate PR, boost brand affinity, engage employees or simply speak to children, teachers and families – one thing is constant. The proven, successful approach we take to working with you.

A proven, successful approach

We start by investigating and gaining an in-depth understanding of your objectives. Then we use our expertise and experience of what works in the learning sector to build a creative solution for you. Underpinning all of our programmes is a robust strategy supported by sound educational content.

Using bespoke messaging and channels, and our close relationships with schools, teachers, education communities and stakeholders, we make sure your programmes are promoted successfully. Finally we measure the level of engagement achieved and results. And for every project we do for you, we use creativity, fun and innovation to bring learning to life.
