What you need to know if you are thinking of applying to us for funding.

The EEF’s grant funding tests the impact of high-potential projects aiming to raise the attainment and wider outcomes of 3 – 18 year-olds, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We do this to find out what’s most likely to work effectively and cost-effectively, and to put that into action across the country.

Teacher Choices’ is a new strand of EEF projects, which explores some of the most common questions teachers ask about their practice, testing everyday choices teachers make when planning their lessons and support for their students. The choices to be explored in this round and in the future are intended to be of high interest to schools, a real choice that can be made by classroom teachers, and easy to implement without lots of training and resources.

This funding round will commission Teacher Choices’ evaluations in three current EEF priority areas, identified using existing EEF evidence reviews as having gaps in the evidence base and with potential to benefit disadvantaged pupils. These are: Early Language, Key Stage One Mathematics, and Cognitive Science.
