Education Innovation Partners

Support projects that transform education

When you support a project you may want to know you're getting tangible results and are making an impact.

At EPIT we have a robust approach to due diligence around the partners and projects we bring on board. We also support those projects with an evaluation process from the get-go. This helps us to understand what kind of impact a project is making and what needs to be adjusted if it's not working.

We're all about collaborative partnerships in education. When you join EPIT you will be part of a community passionate about creating better outcomes in education. It's a space that allows you to learn from other projects and partners so you can make the best decisions about your contribution.

Talk to us

The first thing we do is have a conversation to understand what kind of impact you want to make in education. From there we will prepare a proposal for consideration.

Get in touch
Join our community

If the proposal is approved you'll be invited to be part of the EPIT community. This is a collaborative space where you can get access to insights and learnings from other projects in the education ecosystem.

Support a project

We'll connect you with a project that meets your objectives and provide a robust evaluation process so you'll know the true impact of that project.

Share your learnings

Sharing insights, failures and learnings from a project with the EPIT community will enable the success of future projects.

What our partners are saying

The Te Whiriwhiringa space allows us to bring networks and stakeholders together in a way that we have not done before. As a national organisation, a lot of our engagement work is online but our in-person engagement, which is always more meaningful, has extensively increased since we moved in.
