This round will focus on the themes identified through our new research commissioning process, set out earlier this year:
- Cognitive Science
- Early Language
- Mathematics in the Early Years and Key Stage 1
We are also inviting applications that focus on Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) skills in the Early Years, as well as from scaled or well-evidenced programmes in maths and literacy in Key Stages 2 – 4.
For the first time, applicants will be directed into three separate funding streams, according to what stage of development their project is at:
- Innovation Projects – We’ve identified specific areas of interest and will support teams to develop new programmes in areas of promise
- Development and Pilot Projects – Early-stage programmes which are based on specific areas of evidence, which we’ll support to develop and refine before further evaluation.
- Efficacy and Effectiveness Trials – Testing the impact of programmes that have shown promise in previous smaller scale evaluations.
