The EEG is a forum of leading UK EdTech companies who share a common belief that there needs to be a step-change in the level of evidence available about EdTech. The EEG believes schools and trusts need to be able to easily assess the value and impact of EdTech products, services and platforms.

Our aims:

  • Sustaining high-quality evidence gathering in their own organisations.
  • Helping improve evidence gathering across the EdTech sector
  • Supporting schools to understand how they can assess EdTech solutions and platforms
  • Improving communication to schools and teachers about how to gather evidence and monitor the impact of EdTech

To qualify, a partner member must:

  • Be an EdTech organisation (not a school) and be focused on K-12 market
  • Have a B2B and/or B2C offering / Be for profit or not for proft
  • UK incorporated entity and public facing commercial offering (not just an alpha tested prototype)
  • Demonstrable activity either through a number of active settings or through significant R&D in public facing environments

What does being part of the EEG mean to Supporting Members?

The EEG supports members to become ‘better’ businesses by encouraging all participants to understand evidence gathering and dissemination, and by enabling benchmarking against other leaders in the industry.

The EEG has created a forum through which like-minded people can communicate, share knowledge and learning and, in many instances, collaborate. Founders, CEOs and Senior Leaders from a range of EdTech providers are actively engaged in all aspects of the EEG.

All members of the EEG fundamentally believe in the importance of evidence of efficacy in EdTech. Member companies all show demonstrable commitment to that shared belief.

As a single industry voice, representing the shared views of many the EEG hopes to exert influence at a senior, national, and government level.

Providing credibility for member organisations by working with the market leaders in EdTech evidence.

We are a recognised sign of quality that school leaders trust.

All members are supplied with EEG membership logo that can be used on all your marketing material.

What sort of companies should apply?

Value driven organisations with a demonstrable desire to improve the ecosystem for all

The EEG is actively looking for value driven organisations who believe in collaborating with others to enhance the EdTech ecosystem for all.

Long term investment in evidence gathering and dissemination

Members should be committed to the gathering and dissemination of evidence of efficacy and effectiveness, regardless of the outcome of that evidence. The type of evidence gathered by member organisations may vary depending on the nature and maturity / size of the company, but should show a journey of progression over time.

Supportive, collaborative approach

Although the EEG may comprise non-competing but also directly competing member companies, all EEG members are expected to behave in an honourable and trustworthy manner to other members, never denigrating and, as appropriate, supporting or promoting each others’ products and services.

Demonstrable commitment to continuous learning and improvement

Member organisations will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to continuous learning and improvement to improve the efficacy and effectiveness of their solutions for the teachers and learners that they serve.

  • No more than two named contributors from any one member company
