Learning Lab

The Learning Lab is a new centre for education, technology and innovation based in the heart of London.

It is a unique combination of: an inspiring events and showcasing space for education leaders and businesses across the UK and internationally; a state of the art professional development centre for school, college and university leaders; and a classroom, laboratory and studio space, available to pilot new approaches to the curriculum, run innovative projects and conduct research.

“The Learning Lab is an exciting project that gives companies and partners a great chance to showcase their products, services and innovative work, as well as connect up with leading educators from across the UK”

Graham Stuart MP, Chair, Education Select Committee

A centre for innovation

Learning Lab is a centre for innovation and a space where education leaders – from early years, teachers, school and college leaders, skills and work based learning providers, higher education professionals and businesses – can work, be inspired and help shape the future of education.

Central London Location for showcasing products

The Learning Lab is located in the ‘Hub Westminster’ in Haymarket, London, within 2 minutes walking distance of Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and Whitehall and accessible from every mainline transport link. The Learning Lab is ideal for hosting central London events and showcases for new products, services and innovations across the education sector.

An incubator of projects, products and services

We have designed the lab to be flexible enough to cater for a range of uses – from showcasing new products and services as well as hosting one of our major projects on the ‘Future of Technology and Education’. The space is made available to policy makers, government officials and partner organisations to hold strategy workshops and roundtable sessions and for leading experts to share these insights through The Education Foundation’s programme of events, which will be broadcast and streamed live to the wider world.

Partnership and collaboration

We are always looking for organisations to be our new partners and to support our work in The Learning Lab. The Lab has already attracted a range of high profile people in the education sector and it will attract an audience of thousands of visitors from schools, colleges and universities and government, plus a significant online presence.
