Elevating Education, Everywhere

Introducing Etio

Our name

Etio is the new name for the government services arm of Tribal Group plc. Our rebrand is just one aspect of a series of investments intended to increase the reach, effectiveness and impact of our work, elevating education around the world.

Our name is a testament to our cause - because that’s literally what it means, “cause”. We partner with governments to support them to deliver large scale projects which improve the quality and impact of education. And because what we do is based on evidence and hard-won experience, understanding what causes change is central to what we do. Hence, “Etio”.

Our mission is to effect positive change by elevating education, everywhere. That takes expert insight and the means to turn it into evidence-based action. And that’s exactly what we have, what we can create, and what we do. For our clients and partners, we are the difference that turns ideas into realities.

What we do

We review, evaluate, benchmark and support education services in institutions all over the world. We have the expertise, experience and energy that drives progress and elevates the quality of education for thousands of children and young people.

We achieve this through our four cornerstones:

Etio_Education_Review_POS

Supporting system-wide knowledge, accountability and quality improvement.

Etio_Education_Transformation_POS

Accelerating impact through strategic planning, expanded leadership and enhanced capability.

Etio_EWD_POS-1

Preparing, equipping and empowering a high-performing workforce.

Etio_Performance_Benchmarking_POS

Driving world-class financial performance and student experience through evidence and comparative insights.

How we work

We are committed to delivering with impact. Evidence-based solutions and an enviable track record helping governments and education institutions globally secure better futures for the populations they serve mean you can be assured our shared success.

We are a trusted partner, leading the conversation but doing so within a culture of close collaboration with our clients and partners. Working together, we deliver programmes and initiatives that have the power to improve prospects and possibilities for communities around the world.

We always strive to do the right thing. We put people first, always, because we know that however smart our solutions, when it all comes down to it, it’s people that make the difference.
