Support for the design and early formative evaluation of new evidence-based programmes

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is commissioning a team to support with the design and early formative evaluation of a number of new educational programmes. The programmes will focus on school or teacher practices where there is credible evidence of effectiveness for improving pupil outcomes, but currently a gap in practice. 

Successful applicants will work alongside a small group of  EEF based colleagues supporting delivery teams with the design of new evidence-informed education programmes. This will include assisting them in undertaking rapid, pre-pilot evaluations of the new programme in a small number of settings.

Our goal is that this work will lead to the development of new, evidence-based programmes that successfully pass through the EEF pipeline in future.

Please see the document below for information.

Proposals should be submitted to by 10am on 4 October 2021.
