Established in 2004, the International Network for Educational Transformation (iNET) is an initiative of the Schools Network, the leading body for advancing secondary school excellence and diversity in England.

It focuses on school transformation and aims to facilitate innovation by sharing knowledge and offering a vision of how education can move forward based on the practice of transformation. iNET has grown rapidly into a diverse network across many cultures.
