The EEF’s funding tests the impact of high-potential projects aiming to raise the attainment of 3-18 year-olds, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
They do this to find out what’s most likely to work effectively and cost-effectively, and to put that into action across the country.
The focus is on supporting projects that show promising evidence of having a measurable impact on attainment or a directly related outcome.
They are interested in testing projects’ effectiveness through robust independent evaluations, where appropriate as randomised controlled trials.
If they are shown to have an impact, they should be able to be scaled up to improve outcomes for other disadvantaged children and young people.
