The Toolkit is designed to support teachers and school leaders who are looking to improve learning outcomes in their setting, particularly for disadvantaged children and young people. In the past decade, it has become one of the most popular educational resources, with 70% of school leaders now using it to inform their decision-making.
The EEF Toolkit does not make definitive claims as to what will work to improve outcomes in a given school. Rather it provides high quality information about the approaches that are likely to be beneficial based on existing evidence of what has proven effective in other classrooms. The Toolkit also signposts specific guidance reports, tools and programmes which can provide further support in making meaningful changes in schools.
An up-to-date grasp of the research base has never been more important as school leaders look to devise and enact long-term recovery plans in the wake of the pandemic. This latest version is the result of a fresh look at the evidence base, and as such, the findings have been updated in line with the most recent, highest quality research.
