EEF launches new grant-funding round

The EEF has today launched its latest grant-funding round, seeking applications for high-potential projects which aim to improve attainment and related outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people. 

To date, the EEF has awarded £96.3 million to 160 projects working with over 1,000,000 pupils in over 10,000 schools, as well as early years and post-16 settings, across England.

This latest funding round highlights three categories for which the EEF is particularly keen to receive applications:

  • improving teaching in secondary schools;
  • popular programmes that are widely used by schools, and where there is demand from schools for better evidence of impact; and
  • proposals aiming to support 16-18 year-old learners who have not achieved the expected standard (grade 4 or above) in GCSE English or maths by age 16.

In addition, the EEF is interested in proposals from researchers about how best to evaluate the impact of widespread school practices for which there is currently limited evidence.

Further details and guidance notes are available on the EEF's Applying for funding page.

This funding round closes on 5 July 2018.
