Improving outcomes for disadvantaged 16-18 year-old students (closed)

This themed application round closed and successful applicants have been announced. We are still looking for ideas on this issue, use the guidance below but apply in Round 12.

The EEF and J.P. Morgan are seeking proposals from colleges and schools, training providers, local authorities, charities, networks, research institutions, universities, employers or other organisations who are interested in improving attainment outcomes and employment prospects of disadvantaged 16-18 year old students. This is a call for proposals as part of a £5 million, three-year funding programme that will support work in colleges, sixth form centres, schools and other providers across England. Our focus will be on supporting those students who have not yet achieved a C grade or above at GCSE English and/or maths to do so and/or to improve their Level 2 functional skills.

To apply, please log in or register on the application system and select the Improving outcomes for disadvantaged 16-18 year old students round. Please first read the Application Guidance Notes for this round.

Building on the literature review undertaken for the EEF into the existing evidence about what works for improving outcomes, this funding round with J.P. Morgan aims to add to the evidence base by funding and evaluating promising interventions, programmes and approaches designed to raise the attainment of this group of students.
