National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education

A national strategic and support organisation for the supplementary education sector across England

The National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRC) is the national champion for excellence, innovation and partnership in supplementary education.

We campaign throughout England on behalf of supplementary schools and their students, tutors and leaders. We aim to help raise the profile of supplementary schools and their standards of teaching, learning and management. We also work hard to improve the funding available to them. We work as closely as we can with the schools themselves. We also work with the professionals who support supplementary schools within local authorities, and with mainstream schools wanting to collaborate with and support supplementary education.

We are independent of, but work closely with, local and central government. We’re funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
