The ERA is conceptualised by The University of the West Indies (UWI) as an umbrella body with a focus on research in all disciplinary areas of education (e.g. engineering education, history education, teacher education, vocational education, business education), and at all levels (e.g. early childhood, primary, secondary and tertiary levels) within the national (Trinidad and Tobago) system. The Association views Education in its broadest sense to include, for example, policy, teaching and learning, administration and leadership.

The primary goals of this Association are to provide a common platform for discourse within the educational community, encourage and facilitate a national education research agenda, and to provide mechanisms for the dissemination and promulgation of relevant research findings. By promulgating and disseminating relevant research findings we adopt an approach to education decision-making that is reflective of best practice. The Association recognises Education as a discipline in its own right, the best practice of which, as for any other discipline is supported by research and empirical evidence. A strong view of the Association is that educational research must be studied and structured based on evidence of the culture, social environment, resources and the context of practice. The Association's motto is: Education Research for Best Practice, Best Policy.
