About Us

Narrowing the Gaps Ltd is an educational consultancy launched in 2011 to support schools, local authorities and academy trusts to address attainment inequalities in a highly practical and evidence-based way. There are many things that you can do as a school to narrow attainment gaps, but none is as effective as focusing on improving teaching and learning. This is where we can help.

Jake Mansell: Director, Narrowing the Gaps Ltd

Jake set up Narrowing the Gaps Ltd to improve the life chances of disadvantaged children and young people through working with their teachers and schools.

His work takes him to schools, local authorities, academy trusts and Initial Teacher Training Providers across England and Wales, from Brighton to Bangor, London to Lincolnshire.

Jake also delivers CPD for the National Education Union across England and Wales and more recently via webinar.

To have impact, CPD must be highly engaging, experiential and inspiring. Jake's sessions aim to both communicate and model good practice and are interactive and practical.
