Our mission is to translate research evidence into practical application by providing world-class assessments, interventions, and training, to improve educational outcomes for children worldwide and ensure no child is left behind.
We’re delighted to share that we’re joining forces with Pearson Australia to bring our assessments and interventions to schools in Australia and New Zealand. We look forward to working alongside educators in Australia and New Zealand as they support young learners in developing an early language foundation that sparks overall wellbeing and greater opportunities for a bright future.

A new independent evaluation of NELI found that children who took part in the programme made on average four months’ additional progress in their language skills. It also found that socio-economically disadvantaged children made on average seven months’ additional progress as a result of receiving the programme, suggesting that NELI could help to close the language development gap between these children and their peers.
Our founder Professor Charles Hulme was recently interviewed by TES about how schools can best support language development
