Education and technology

UK innovators are transforming education and learning

The UK is a global leader in education technology with the largest edtech (education technology) market in Europe and the fourth biggest globally.

With the sudden shift to at-home learning during the Covid-19 pandemic, the role technology plays in education has never been more pertinent than it is today. Edtech has moved from being desirable to essential in the education setting. Over half of the European edtech Top 20 list are from the UK with more than 1,000 edtech companies nationally. These companies cover the full educational landscape, with expertise in infrastructure, connectivity, hardware, software and content.


“The UK has a vibrant ecosystem of edtech startups that develop innovative solutions to address specific challenges in education” Carrie-Ann Gibson - International education manager.
