What we do
Simply put, we support education and business to raise standards, drive innovation and improve lives. These are our flagship services, but we're able to help with pretty much any aspect of education and training, and if we can't, we'll find you someone who can.
China school exchange
We offer unique China-UK school exchange programmes, recruitment of teachers and sports coaches as well as strategic and on-the-ground consultancy. We will soon be launching a new partnership between Real World Education and VEC (Verbaledu Education China) to place interns in Chinese schools, ready to help support.
Websites for education organisations
You need a website to stun your visitors at the same time as providing robust functionality and features? We will design your website to suit your needs – honest, transparent service, and we’re not happy until you are!
From concept to completion, we provide the support you need at the level you need it. We take the heavy lifting off your hands, leaving you to focus on enjoying the event and reaping the benefits. We provide concept workshops, marketing, ticketing, exhibition management, logistics, sponsorship procurement and partnership development.
LinkedIn for Students
400 members in 200 countries, 40 million students or recent graduates and a signup rate of 2 per second – LinkedIn is the fastest developing online business network in the world. Can you afford not to understand it? And, can you afford not to be on it? With more and more employers and education institutions scanning LinkedIn profiles of prospective candidates, it’s really become more of a ‘must’ than a ‘may do’.
Teach in china
A fantastic opportunity to travel, supercharge your CV and most importantly, make a difference to young people’s lives. We link you with a Chinese agency who specialise in placing interns in China. They have a specific focus on English oral language skills which fits together very nicely with our SpeechCraft training programmes we’re developing in collaboration with Chinese English teachers in Shanghai.
PE and Sport Teaching and Learning support
High quality training in Physical Education teaching and learning methodology, coach education and community engagement planning. We pride ourselves on staying in tune with the latest research, as well as drawing on deep, specialist experience in PE and Sports teaching and coaching.
Employment skills for students
Our mock interview, video analysis, C.V development, writing skills, LinkedIn training and business mentoring grows confidence and expertise in students and staff needing to rev up their chances of gaining new jobs, internships, work experience or university placements.
leadership coaching and consultancy
Our tailored coaching and workshop support for aspiring or middle and senior education leaders will help to supercharge outcomes, improve efficiency and productivity, develop relationships and motivation, improve wellbeing and tackle strategic challenges. Test drive one of our packages today.
Marketing for education organisations
Marketing your educational offer is no longer an option, and it’s a badly misunderstood area. Marketing is MORE than just a rolling cycle of websites, press releases and leaflets. REAL marketing is borne of deep insight, and emotionally connects your provision with the people who need it. We help you understand it, plan it and make it happen.
Social Media for education
Does your social media really reflect your best assets and your character? Do your posts get to the people you want to reach? Do you have a robust, safe system that reduces anxiety and workload? If the answer is “I’m not sure” or “no” to any one of those questions, feel free to test drive one of our marketing packages.
TeachPE.com was our first flagship group company. Founded in 1998, it is one of the longest surviving (and still thriving) PE and Sport website for schools in the history of the internet. Please visit the site to see the depth and breadth the site has to offer, and see why TeachPE still brings us the kind of credibility and educational development focus we continually strive for.
Who we are
We are specialists in many aspects of UK and Chinese education, and marketing for education. We can’t claim to be experts in every area of education (this might just defeat the notion of being ‘expert’), but – our passionate focus on making life better is our continuous aim. We are geeky about methodology and pedagogy, and love to immerse ourselves in all things teaching and learning. Our core services are listed above, but if there’s something you need and we can’t provide it – we will happily find you someone who can.
we strive for unique
Our combination of experience in teaching and education leadership, fused with our business and marketing skills, plus our international experience in challenging educational contexts makes us the only company in the world with this unique blend and offer of services. We believe that helping you to uncover the ingredients and skills you need to help achieve your aims is just a baseline expectation. Alongside that, we want you to feel like there's something special about our partnership with you; an edge you're getting that you know is there but is hard to replicate or to quantify. The extra mile we go to ensure you’re confident to drive things forwards is reflected in our satisfaction policy. Basically, if you don’t like what you get, you don’t pay – it’s as simple as that.
Why we do what we do...
Well, let's be honest here, we’re inherently selfish! We believe that simple Job satisfaction is not such a dated concept. Yes, we're in business, so yes, we have to find ways to earn a crust, but we thrive on making a difference to people's lives, from being unique, and knowing that our business matters to the world.
We believe that education powers the world. It is the one human-focused asset that everyone wants. Everyone is connected through education - children, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, friends or colleagues. So, here's how we think - great education enables great decisions - great decisions breeds success - success breeds self-esteem, happiness and sustainability, and when that feeds into business then the process starts again. Outstanding achievements by our staff in the UK, Iraq, Rwanda and China has given us an edge - an eclectic view of the world and a global outlook - sustainability, interconnectedness, altruistic values and a sharp focus on strategy and delivery of the best possible outcomes means that we can provide a truly unique service.
