Ten more research schools will be set up this year under a £1.5 million expansion of the project aimed at helping schools increase the use of evidence in the classroom, Schools Week is reporting.
The move is part of a shift by the EEF from evidence-gathering to ensuring research on best practice reaches schools and has an impact in the classroom.
The new research schools will help fill geographical gaps and will each get £140,000 over the next three years. The associates will be given £20,000 for one year.
Sir Kevan Collins, EEF chief executive, said: “We’re at an important moment in the potential of evidence to improve teaching and learning in England’s schools, particularly for our most disadvantaged young people.”
