Fund description:

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), which seeks to improve the educational attainment of disadvantaged pupils (aged 3 – 18), has launched a new funding round.

This round of funding is particularly aimed at projects that maintain or improve pupil outcomes while reducing teacher workload.

Programmes must be scalable and able to be replicated in schools/settings across England. The Foundation does not fund projects in one or very small numbers of schools/settings. Their smallest projects have been in 3-4 schools, but are typically in more than 50, and often over 80, institutions. Applications for funding can be made before schools have been recruited to take part.

To be eligible the applicant must be a not-for-profit organisation, such as a school, charity, social enterprise, local authority or university. The expected minimum grant size is £50,000.
