A year later the Trustees decided to broaden its scope to include other aspects of education development and changed its name to the Gauteng Education Development Trust.  The Trust is managed by a Board of Trustees which is guided in its decision making by a Trust Deed as well as a Board Charter.  The Board Charter focuses on the governance of the Trust and guides its operations on a day to day basis. 

Trustees were initially nominated by representatives from the founding organisations, but are now sourced on the basis of the skills that the Trust may require on its Board.  The Trust’s initial focus was fund-holding for the GDE, but later included project management and the implementation of its own projects such as the ICT Pilot Project and the Maths and Science Grant Project, to name a few.

Some large scale projects that have been managed by the Trust to date:
