Business engagement with schools

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is commissioning a review of the current evidence about the most effective ways businesses can support schools to improve pupil outcomes.

We are seeking proposals from research teams able to complete this review by March 2017. This review will identify the most promising approaches and programmes that businesses can use to support schools. It will inform future grant making and guidance issued to schools and businesses. We are interested in all types of volunteering, but have a particular interest in approaches aimed at improving primary literacy (e.g. volunteer reading).
