Progressive Education

Founded in 2019, Progressive Education works to create a world where education has the best interests of the child at heart.

We explore why we need progressive alternatives to traditional methods in education, provides information on what the alternative approaches are and outlines how the education system could be reimagined.

Our directory of education providers lists progressive schools and learning communities in the UK aimed at school-aged children (4-18 years). We have included providers who aim to put the child at the centre of their approach: Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Democratic/Self-Directed Education, Forest School and Waldorf Steiner.

If you are seeking employment within the progressive education sector, our jobs directory lists posts for facilitators/teachers, support staff and campaign/policy work.

If you work in a mainstream school or your child attends a state primary or secondary, you can visit our School Support page for ideas to enhance the student experience. We also support campaigns to bring about positive changes within the state education system, list events about progressive education, and we are building a library of articles and research.

Have a look through our Voices from the Sector pages to hear why progressive education is so important for the 21st century. You can hear perspectives from parents, teachers, progressive education providers, state school innovators, psychologists and researchers.

We hope this resource will help parents/carers, teachers, policy makers and other professionals to make informed choices about education.

We have a very active growing Facebook group with over 3000 members. “Progressive Education Group” is a supportive, friendly, international network for anyone interested in progressive methods in education. Please join us!
