education funding and resource insights

Established in 2005, the National Education Research Panel (NERP) is a network of research contributors spanning over 9,000 teaching professionals and parents. A gateway for senior leaders, ICT, subject specialists and other stakeholders to participate in research which informs the education community as well as providing benchmarking opportunities for their own schools. Our research requests come from trade bodies, educational resource providers, publishers and other content providers from across the UK.



We only ask research panel members to participate in research if it is relevant to their panel profile and experience.


The panel currently includes head teachers and other senior leadership team members; resource managers; ICT leaders and subject specialists covering the core and foundation curriculum.


Your time is valuable to us. Each time panellists take a couple of minutes to complete an online survey, it directs much needed funds towards worthy causes. Our 2024 charity is Unicef.


Unicef is the world’s leading organisation for children. They work with families, local communities, partners and government in more than 190 countries to help every child realise their full potential.


Our research expertise has been developed over 30 years of dedicated education market research and analysis. By guaranteeing panel members are not over-researched and ensuring our surveys are well-targeted and professionally created, the sector benefits from clear and valuable insight from the community.

From Unicef: Thanks again for your invaluable support. For every £1 donated to Unicef UK, 73p goes directly towards our work for children. 26p is spent raising a further £1 and just 1p is spent on governance and administration.


One in three children in sub-Saharan Africa doesn’t finish primary school. Just £9.50 could buy exercise books, pens, pencils, and textbooks to help a child go to school for a whole year.
