More about Ambition Institute

Who we are

Ambition Institute is a national education charity. We run training programmes for teachers, school leaders and system leaders who serve children from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

What we do

We want to ensure there are expert teachers in every classroom, being led by exceptional school leaders at all levels. Through our suite of programmes we’re now able to support educators at every stage – from new teachers through to MAT CEOs.

Why we exist

We know that children from disadvantaged backgrounds don’t do as well at school and we know that improving teaching and school leadership is the best way to fix this.

Our expertise

Our programmes are informed by the latest research and the lessons we’ve learned from great teachers and school leaders like you. We don’t have all the answers, but we use both evidence and the wisdom of experts to guide our way.
