Our Objectives

Our express aim is to join the dots across the national education sector by providing a central resource for networking, information, signposting, promoting and supporting activity across three key working streams:

  • Skills and Talent
  • Apprenticeships
  • Ed Tech

Our work supports the Digital Skills Plan at a national, local and regional government level.

We want to help provide some clarity and join the dots between who and what is going on within our three streams of focus, across the country.


To drive this activity we are creating an online Central Information Resourceaimed at all stakeholders across public sector organisations, education activity providers, teachers and educators, students, young people and businesses.

The portal will:

  • Promote skills and talent activity from Government (top down) to Grassroots (bottom up)
  • Manage data and links to relevant sites for both academia and businesses to access information on Apprenticeship practises for corporates, and will identify opportunities and pathways for young people
  • Signpost, support and promote Edtech businesses and start-ups, supporting and collaborating with industry partners, in the existing eco-system for organisations and individuals active in this sector
  • Link members of TLA Education with the wider TLA and GLA membership



A short monthly newsletterwill be issued on sector activity – comprising information on events, new funding opportunities, start-up and product launches and initiatives – and a featured Guest blog – written by a TLA Ed member each month.

Where possible, TLA Education will host, co-host and support sector eventsthroughout the year.
