The Education Endowment Foundation is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement. We do this by supporting schools to improve teaching and learning through better use of evidence.

Established in 2011 by the Sutton Trust, as a lead charity in partnership with Impetus Trust (now part of Impetus – the Private Equity Foundation), the EEF aims to raise the attainment of 3-18 year-olds by summarising the best available evidence; generating new evidence of ‘what works’ to improve teaching and learning; and supporting teachers and senior leaders across the country. Earlier this year it was confirmed that EEF will be re-endowed with at least a further £100 million from the Department for Education to continue its work beyond 2026.

We are now seeking several new trustees to join a strong skillset Board, chaired by Sir Peter Lampl, and contribute to EEF’s strategic development and further success. Successful candidates will be passionate about our mission and bring experience of organisational leadership which will allow them to support and guide the organisation in the next phase of its development. They should be individuals from a diverse background, of exceptional calibre, combining a demonstrable record of achievement in their chosen careers, strong intellect, and a willingness to challenge constructively.

We are particularly interested to engage with individuals with experience in the following areas: finance, investment management, education leadership and research. We are committed to enhancing the diversity of our Board, particularly in terms of the representation of individuals from minoritised racial or ethnic groups and in ensuring EEF national reach is underpinned with appropriate regional representation.

EEF is committed to creating a diverse environment and ensuring that all qualified applicants receive equal consideration for appointment.
