Challenge Partners is a practitioner-led education charity that enables collaboration between schools to enhance the life chances of all children, especially the most disadvantaged.

About us

Challenge Partners comprises 375 schools in more than 50 local partnerships across the country, reaching over 209,000 pupils (with 36% from low income households). We welcome all phases and stages: we are currently 51% primary, 35% secondary, and 14% special/AP; all governance types, half are academies representing 45 multi-academy trusts; and the majority are good and outstanding.

We provide networks and programmes that facilitate sustainable collaboration and challenge between schools in order to underpin improvements in outcomes which would not be possible for a school, or group of schools, to achieve as effectively on its own.

We seek collaborative partnerships across education and beyond. Challenge Partners schools are able to access and contribute to work with a wide range of others organisations including: the Education Endowment Foundation, Institute of Education, Olevi International, London Leadership Strategy, Researchers in Schools, and The Brilliant Club.

Challenge Partners is supported by the Social Business Trust, a charity that supports effective social enterprises scale-up their impact, through their partner organisations: Bain & Company, British Gas, Clifford Chance, Credit Suisse, EY, Permira and Thomson Reuters.

What can we offer Escapees?

We are dedicated to working hard for our schools whilst enjoying what we do and who we work with. You will be working in a friendly and dynamic group with backgrounds in education, the wider social enterprise and charity sector, and the corporate world. The majority of roles are member-facing, and team members work closely with leaders in our schools to generate and refine ideas and create maximum value for the network.

Our team is very important to us, and we are looking for someone who shares our key values:

  • Teamwork (we listen to, share with and learn from each other)
  • Challenge Partners Family (we support each other to do our best and have fun doing it)
  • Pursuit of excellence (we strive for excellence in all that we do and take great pride in our work)
  • Trust and transparency (we are open, honest and humble)
  • Creative freedom (we encourage people to speak-up and take ownership)
