Children in a field

Our education system has failed to adapt to the demands of the twenty-first century. What worked in the past is now leaving learners unprepared for our rapidly changing future.

At Nesta our vision is for a world where all learners have the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive. That’s why we are committed to making education broader, fairer and smarter.

Champion a broader vision of education

We believe in supporting young people to develop as rounded individuals, well-prepared for life and work. This means developing essential future skills alongside academic success and digital skills to thrive in a changing labour market and to lead fulfilled lives.

Support a fairer system

We want to increase diversity and enable equal opportunity for women, minorities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds to have better access to careers in technology and innovation. We support research and campaign to improve the evidence base for high potential approaches.

Promote a smarter system

We want to empower learners, teachers and learning institutions to make more effective use of technology and data. This might be through supporting the system to be more effective, educators to reduce their workload and helping learners better navigate their future careers, skills and job opportunities.
