Venture Education empowers UK education in China. Headquartered in Beijing, Venture is an independent consultancy with a diverse team of innovative educators, researchers, business specialists and project leaders. We have a considerable network of individuals and organisations in both China and the UK. Our goal is to improve global education through sharing best practice, partnering between leading organisations and developing creative new approaches. Our approach is bespoke: we are extremely passionate about every project and geared towards either sustainable quality by-the-book or wild invention for maximum impact. Our clients include different departments of national governments, NGOs & charities and businesses of all sizes. While we work across all aspects of education, from early years to EdTech, we have particular focuses in employability, entrepreneurship & professional development, girls’ and women’s education and student transition (including school to school, school to university, university to employment and country to country).

Previous and current projects range very widely: from research reports on education opportunities in Hainan, to delivering employability workshops for a UK university TNE partnership in Shaanxi; from assisting a UK independent school with market entry, to promoting emerging leadership skills in teenage girls in Beijing with a professional mentoring programme. Venture Education frequently features in international media outlets and was a finalist for two awards in the UN-backed 2019 China Social Impact Awards.
