years of experience

Founded in 1984 by two Headteachers who had a vision to improve learning, we have become the fastest-growing independent primary curriculum in the world. We have also developed early years and middle years curriculum to improve learning throughout a child's education.

Fieldwork Education was created to offer practical, accessible and jargon-free help to schools that was firmly rooted in best practice and research.

Our founders recognised that students’ learning was the single most important factor by which teachers, schools and communities contributing to that learning should be judged by.

Improving learning soon became our mission statement and we have since grown to be known worldwide for our leading curriculums and our professional learning and leadership development programmes.

Now part of Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium schools organisation, we are proud to be part of a global family of 66 premium international schools, providing outstanding education from preschool through to the end of secondary education.

Fieldwork Education has a rich history of leading innovation in international education, with our relevant, practical and research-driven approaches to designing International Curriculum, accreditation, professional learning and consultancy. Our humble beginnings as an education consultancy have evolved into the modern international organisation we are today, with our world-leading curriculum, the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), supported by our accreditation services through the International Curriculum Association (ICA).

Schools subscribing to, and accredited for, our International Curriculum are present in over 90 countries and benefit from our professional learning pathway that supports teachers and leaders around the world. All of this, past, present and future, is with our simple aim – Improving Learning.

We are passionate and dedicated to this aim, which drives everything we do for schools. As we continue to grow, now part of the Nord Anglia Education family, we celebrate the diversity of our international community and look to harness the efforts of learners, teachers and schools around the world to collaborate towards our aim – Improving Learning – together.”
