We’ve scanned over 50 innovations for young people across the globe to understand the opportunities and challenges facing pioneers working to transform education and learning.

This is part of our work to make sure we continue to understand the trends, evidence, issues and opportunities associated with our 10 hopes for change.

We have highlighted projects from organisations working at the front lines of change. You’ll see both new faces and familiar ones in this research, as we’ve highlighted the work from some of our project partners and global network alongside new finds.

A couple of headlines from our findings:

  • The pandemic has accelerated conversations for change by highlighting pre-existing inequalities – we can continue to seize this moment to engage regional and local voices, while connecting to similar global movements
  • We can leverage the need for new ways of learning and support for young people to unlock conversations between educators, further + higher education providers and employers to create new learning and progression pathways
  • We need a concerted political and policy strategy around lifelong learning and skills, learning from those who have already implemented a ‘cradle to grave’ approach to education and learning
  • Place based change led by local anchor organisations is going to play an increasingly important role in making our 10 hopes a reality – alongside an increased understanding of the role of local culture and heritage in the development of relationships and connections between people and communities
