We have a clear vision: to be a trusted partner for schools. We are guided by a set of values that ensure we support teachers and leaders to improve the educational outcomes for all children and young people, especially disadvantaged groups. To achieve this vision in accordance with our values, we have developed clear aims that guide our activities, and a coherent theory of change to show how the issues facing schools, our activity and our aims all line up.
SWIFT is built on a partnership model. By creating a strong, mature partnership, SWIFT acts as a multiplier within the education system, meaning we are much more than the sum of our parts. By working together in the spirit of mutual support and towards common goals we can make this a reality. The "more than" principle is enshrined in our logo, which is a stylised more than sign.
Running through our leadership and governance are two axes: vertical, where we are aligned to deliver Teaching School Hub programmes; horizontal, where we are aligned to build and sustain a partnership to deliver Universal programmes.
