Research Seminar: Evidence in Education: challenges, lessons learnt and opportunities

14th February 2018, 13:00 to 14:00, ED 134, Mr Thomas Martell

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement. More than £96 million has been invested by the EEF and our funding partners in the evaluation of 160 projects since we began our work in 2011. These have involved more than 10,000 schools, as well as early years and post-16 settings, in England and reached over one million children and young people.

The EEF supports school leaders in three main ways:

- Synthesising the existing evidence: most notably through our Teaching and Learning Toolkit

- Generating new evidence: we are funding more trials in education than any other organisation globally and have commissioned some 10 per cent of all known trials

- Scaling up evidence: we are currently experimenting with different approaches to putting evidence to work in schools

During this seminar Tom will provide an overview of the EEFs work, share some of the lessons learnt in the EEF’s first six years, and look ahead to the opportunities and challenges to come.
