Jonathan joined the EEF in September 2013, seconded from the Institute for Effective Education, University of York, on a research placement co-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. Jonathan works with schools and policy makers across the education sector to promote evidence-based practice, and spread knowledge of ‘what works’ in teaching and learning.

He is the author of Evidence for the Frontline , a report published by the Alliance for Useful Evidence that outlines the elements of a functioning evidence system.
