Nord Anglia
Future Ready Kids Global Research
How do you best position an international educational institution to drive competitive differentiation and let families know you offer the most inspiring and future-focused education available?
Key Information

In a world transforming more quickly than at any point in human history, Nord Anglia Education needed to fully understand what they could do across their global network of schools to best create future-ready kids.


KI needed to look at what parents most want from their child’s education, what children themselves would find most inspiring, and how we could best communicate that NAE offers all of this and more to prospective families.


Through qualitative methods, Kids Industries conducted interviews and workshops with over 100 participants across China, Spain, the UK & US. Through both discussion and ideation based methods, we uncovered parents’, children’s and teens’ hopes, dreams and concerns for the future, as well as co-create the ultimate educational proposition for private international schools.

We utilised innovative and gamified methods to understand, in detail, parent’s desired investment into both predetermined educational offers and experiences, and those generated in our workshops.


Global opinions, expectations and ambitions were incredibly diverse, but we pulled together all of these divergent thinking strands to provide the Nord Anglia family with a robust pathway to educating the children of tomorrow – including international marketing messaging, education proposition plans and potential taglines for their global network.
