Who we are

Founded by the Department of Education in response to the new primary and secondary curriculum, the Expert Subject Advisory Groups (ESAG) is a sector-led initiative that provides concrete guidance and practical support to all schools and teachers. ESAG is not-for-profit and politically independent.

Our primary resources

Our website is a hub for the latest subject and assessment guidance available for primary and secondary teachers. We provide schools throughout England with essential resources for the implementation of the new National Curriculum.

Our expertise

We have assembled an expert advisory group for each curriculum subject, as well as for assessment and for equality, diversity and inclusion. Their work is overseen by a Strategic Committee that includes leading educationalists of national renown, such as Professor Robin Alexander, Sir Jim Rose, Dr Kevan Collins and David Weston. Group membership ranges from acclaimed subject leaders to regulatory bodies, with our members contributing current in-the-field experience and wider professional experience in the education sector.
