Trusts and Foundations


Ambition Institute is a charity working with teachers, school leaders and system leaders. We believe that helping educators to keep getting better is the key to unlocking better outcomes for children for years to come.  

England is a deeply divided country, with educational inequality locking millions of young people out of social mobility. 

Research shows that:  

  • The quality of a child’s education is too often shaped by geography 
  • There is a shortage of experienced, highly-qualified teachers in the system, particularly in the poorest communities
  • Teachings are leaving the profession quicker than they are joining it 
  • We are facing a leadership crisis, with too few aspiring headteachers to fill the growing number of roles.  

We work with leading funder partners to find the best solutions to help teachers and leaders transform educational outcomes of disadvantaged pupils. We are also developing online learning opportunities to increase access to our programmes.  

If you are a grant-making trust or foundation who shares our commitment to achieving educational equality everywhere, we would like to hear from you -
