About The Key

Our market-leading information services, professional development and online platform solutions help busy professionals work with increased confidence, knowledge and capacity.

We are driven by a public service ethos, from our history and roots in serving the education sector to our growth into supporting the wider public sector. Every day we answer new questions from school leaders and governors, and every week we engage with local authorities, multi-academy trusts and leading figures in the public sector. These deep connections give us unparalleled insights into concerns, trends and good practice.
