IOE is UCL's Faculty of Education and Society. From legacy to innovation, we have been shaping policy and helping government, organisations and individuals to navigate a radically changing society for the last 120 years. Working across education, culture, psychology and social science, we create lasting and evolving change in a real-world context. We embrace cross-pollination, collaboration and excellence to create a future that is inclusive and just. We do this through world-leading education, research and enterprise, and have been ranked number one for education worldwide every year since 2014 in the QS World University Rankings. We merged with UCL in December 2014, and have grown our community to more than 8,000 students, 800 staff and hundreds of thousands of alumni who push the boundaries of knowledge and lead challenging conversations. We were previously known as the UCL Institute of Education.IOE was founded in October 1902 as the London Day Training College (LDTC), under the joint auspices of the University of London and of the London County Council. In 1932 it became the University's largest central activity as the Institute of Education, and from 1949 it became the centre of a wider Institute of some 30 associated colleges and departments of education. After occupying various premises in central London, in 1977 IOE moved to its permanent home, 20 Bedford Way, an iconic, Grade II* listed building of the British Modernist movement designed by Sir Denys Lasdun.On 2 December 2014 the Institute and UCL merged to create a new institution with over 35,000 students, the biggest higher education institution in London, and the largest postgraduate institution in the UK, with 19,000 postgraduate students. IOE joined UCL as a single Faculty School, and became known as the UCL Institute of Education. The merger provided the opportunity to extend our global influence further, to work with traditional stakeholders in schools and colleges in new and more imaginative ways, and to deepen our cross-disciplinary work across the full range of education, culture, psychology and social science. IOE is no longer known as the Institute of Education, but as IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, reflecting our important work beyond education from the 1930s onwards.IOE works across many countries. Our research, consultancy and collaborative partnerships shape policy for governments, international and national agencies, charities and the private sector around the world. Our global engagement commits us to research and scholarship that has a global perspective; international partnerships that bring mutual benefit; with partners to find ways to reduce global inequalities through education; encouraging an international orientation in our staff and students; responsible and sustainable international student recruitment; an internationalised curriculum; and a strong international network of alumni. Our work around the world is closely aligned with UCL's Global Engagement Strategy (GES), such that all the IOE's international engagement addresses one or more of the strategic drivers of the GES.In 1900, a report on the training of teachers, produced by the Higher Education Sub-Committee of the Technical Education Board (TEB) of the London County Council, called for further provision for the training of teachers in London in universities. The TEB submitted a scheme to the Senate of the University of London for a new day-training college, which would train teachers of both sexes when most existing courses were taught in single-sex colleges or departments. The principal of the proposed college was also to act as the Professor of the Theory, History and Practice of Education at the university. The new college was opened on 6 October 1902 as the London Day Training College under the administration of the LCC.Its first principal was Sir John Adams, who had previously been the Professor of Education at University of Glasgow. Adams was joined with a mistress and master of Method (later Vice-Principals). The bulk of the teaching was carried out by the Vice-Principals and other specialists were appointed to teach specific subjects, including Cyril Burt. Initially the LDTC only provided teacher training courses lasting between 1 and 3 years.The LDTC became a school of the University of London in 1909 and was wholly transferred to the university and was renamed the University of London, Institute of Education. Gradually the Institute expanded its activities and began to train secondary school teachers and offered higher degrees. It also moved into specific areas of research with its Child Development Department, administered by Susan Sutherland Isaacs and the training of teachers for the colonial service. At the outbreak of World War II, the Institute was temporarily transferred to the University of Nottingham.As a result of the report of the McNair Committee, which was established by the Board of Education to examine recruitment and training of teachers and youth leaders a new scheme for teacher training was established in England. "Area Training Organisations" (ATO) were created to co-ordinate the provision of teacher training and were responsible for the overall administration of all colleges of education within their area. The ATO for the London area was based at the University of London under the name University of London, Institute of Education, which was responsible for around 30 existing colleges of education and education departments, including the existing Institute of Education. The colleges (known as "constituent colleges" of the Institute) prepared students for the "Certificate in Education" of the Institute, and latterly for the Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Humanities degrees of the University. The existing Institute (referred to as the "Central Institute") and the new ATO (referred to as the "Wider Institute") had separate identities, but confusingly were administered from the same building and by the same administrate staff. This dual identity continued until the Wider Institute gradually disappeared and was finally dissolved in 1975, coinciding with the closure (or "merger" with local polytechnics and other institutions) of many of the colleges of education.In 1987 the Institute once again became a school of the University of London and was incorporated by Royal Charter. The IOE and UCL formed a strategic alliance in October 2012, including co-operation in teaching, research and the development of the London schools system. In February 2014 the two institutions announced their intention to merge and the merger was completed in December 2014. In March 2015 it was announced that the IOE would be the lead partner in the UK Centre for Global Higher Education, a new centre focusing on the systematic investigation of higher education and its future. The Economic and Social Research Council announced that it would provide £5 million in funding for the centre for the period to 2019, the other partners in which are Lancaster University and the University of Sheffield.
