Stuart Mathers

National Delivery Manager

Stu leads the EEF’s regional work and the support for the Research School Network. He is based in North Yorkshire. Until February 2020, Stu will help support the EEF's work in Yorkshire and East Midlands as part of maternity cover for the regional lead.

Stu joined the EEF in February 2017, and since then has been involved in the development of the Research School Network and the EEF’s approach to mobilising evidence. Drawing on his background around professional development, implementation and making change at scale, Stu has supported the development of training around the Implementation Guide, Secondary Science and KS2/3 Maths.

Before joining the EEF Stu spent 10 years at the Department for Education, providing policy advice on teachers' professional development, evidence-based teaching, the use of teaching assistants, and primary pedagogy. Stu has also previously been a school governor, most recently as the Chair of Governors at a very small primary school in Scarborough.
