ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that supports schools and education organisations in understanding the impact that their programmes and interventions have on pupil outcomes.
Schools invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different initiatives to support their pupils – from in-school tutoring to enrichment programmes to mentoring projects. But far too often, it is extremely challenging for them to assess the impact of what they do. ImpactEd aims to address this evaluation deficit. We exist to improve outcomes and life chances for children by helping leaders to better identify and prioritise those programmes that are making the biggest difference.
We work in partnership with schools and education organisations to develop capacity for research and evaluation, and use our digital platform to make high-quality monitoring and evaluation easy. Most of our work is in or with schools, including collaborations with national school groups such as Challenge Partners, United Learning and Academies Enterprise Trust.
Founded in 2017, ImpactEd launched into schools in September 2018. Since then we have been growing rapidly. We won the 2018 Teach First Innovation Award, were finalists in the 2019 Education Resources Awards and have had our work profiled by the Department for Education. We are a small, dedicated and growing team that is committed to maximising social impact.
Having rolled out nationally over the course of the last year, the organisation is at a pivotal point in our growth and development. Our ambition is to support teachers’ use of impact evaluation to make meaningful decisions to improve outcomes for tens of thousands of pupils over the coming years. Our model for school partnerships, combining technology, education research and collaborative working with teachers and leaders, is at the heart of this.
The role of the Head of School Partnerships will to be define, deliver and refine our overall school partnerships strategy, and develop a team to achieve this. This is a leadership position that will contribute directly to organisational strategy and sustainability; recruit, manage and coach a growing team of partnership managers; and support business development including sales to schools. You’ll ensure we achieve maximum possible impact with our school partners, and expand our reach. You will also manage partnerships first-hand with a number of schools and school groups, with the level of direct delivery reducing over time as the school partnerships team grows.
As a leadership role within the organisation, we are looking for someone with deep understanding and experience of the UK school system, a track record of successful people and strategic leadership, and insight into the role high-quality research and evaluation can play in making a difference to educational outcomes. You would be joining a dynamic education start-up with opportunities for significant development and progression in line with organisational growth.
