About us

Edge is the independent education charity dedicated to shaping the UK education system to meet the changing demands of the twenty-first century labour market. 

Technical and creative skills are critical to our digital economy. Edge believes they should be a key part of a coherent, unified and holistic education system to support social mobility and enable all young people to fulfill their potential. 

Our plan for education

  • Create a broad, balanced and relevant 14-19 curriculum
  • Make school work relevant by putting it into context
  • Remove the cliff edge at 16, focusing on stage rather than age
  • Focus apprenticeships on young people joining the labour market
  • Integrate employer engagement throughout
  • Give teachers more support and greater freedom
  • Support more collaboration between institutions
  • Develop an accountability system focused on outcomes
