The University of Cambridge Faculty of Education is committed to the highest standards of research and teaching and is a significant contributor to the improvement of educational policy and practice in partnership with schools, colleges and other educational agencies both in the UK and internationally.
In August 2001 the Faculty became one of the largest groups of educational researchers and teacher educators in the country.

Bringing together colleagues from the former University School of Education and Homerton College, the integrated Faculty currently has an academic staff of 10 professors, 4 emeritus professors, 5 readers and some 60 lecturers/senior lecturers and over 100 support staff.
The Faculty of Education has a commitment to conducting research of high quality and practical value. Our research is underpinned by a strong set of values which give it purpose and direction. Particular effort is directed towards the improvement of education with a central focus on teaching and learning, informed by principles of inclusivity and social justice, and valuing the contribution of user groups, especially practitioners, in collaborative research partnerships.
The Faculty has academic groups focusing on many aspects of education, some generic (inclusion and special provision; leadership and improvement; learning and teaching), some phase-specific (early years and primary; secondary), and some subject-specific (arts; language and literature; mathematics; science), as well as on studies of education from disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspectives (economics, history, philosophy and sociology; psychology).
