A new service for BESA Members


We are delighted to announce that Educate Ventures (EVR) and BESA are joining forces this year to offer a new service to BESA members. The EDUCATE Evidence and Impact programme has been designed to enable companies to better evidence the impact of their products and services on the education sector and to successfully communicate this evidence to their customers.


The importance of evidencing of impact

In order to succeed, businesses in our sector must now be very clear as to the positive impact their product or service will bring about. Increasingly decision makers are asking how a product or service will harness or change learner or teacher behaviour to optimise outcomes.  Educational and training leaders are demanding that companies back up their promises with reliable evidence.


The Educate Evidence and Impact programme will help any company, no matter their size to effectively evidence their impact for customers, regulators, and themselves.


“Our new service will enable BESA members to discover and learn the tools to help them develop effective educational research and evidence practices within their own companies with the help, advice and support of internationally renowned EdTech evidence and research expert Professor Rose Luckin and her EDUCATE VENTURES team.” – Caroline Wright, Director General, BESA


“We’re working to make educational research more accessible and usable, so that we can ensure educational technology is robust, valid and fit for purpose. Everyone can benefit from evidence-informed EdTech. Learners can become better at learning, teachers can become better at teaching, researchers can conduct more impactful research, and developers can produce more effective technologies” – Professor Rose Luckin, Founder, EDUCATE Ventures
