New EEF grant-funding round announced
The EEF has today launched its latest grant-funding round, seeking applications for high-potential projects which aim to to raise the attainment and wider outcomes of young people aged 3-18, especially from disadvantaged backgrounds
To date, the EEF has awarded £114 million to 190 projects working with over 1.2 million pupils in over 13,000 schools, as well as early years and post-16 settings, across England.
This latest funding round highlights two categories for which the EEF is particularly keen to receive applications:
- approaches to marking and assessment that improve the efficiency of the process without decreasing its impact; or
- testing models of professional development that effectively influence teacher practice without requiring substantial teacher time.
Further details and guidance notes are available on the EEF's Applying for funding page.
To help those interested in applying, we're holding a webinar - 'What you need to know if you are thinking of applying to us for funding' - with our joint heads of programmes, Eleanor Stringer and Matthew van Poortvliet, on Tuesday, 11 March, at 4pm. Sign up to attend here.
This funding round closes on 28 June.
