Early Years and Transitions
We commissioned The Education Policy Institute and The Centre for Education and Youth to evaluate the effectiveness of the delivery method for each organisation supported by our Early Years or Transitions Special Initiatives.
We commissioned The Open University (OU) as a research partner to work alongside the organisations supported by our Literacy Special Initiative. The OU is drawing out key themes and learning, supporting evaluations and conducting a literature review of Young Peoples Reading and Writing for Pleasure. Ultimately this work will be synthesised to produce a 'what works' framework for Reading and Writing for Pleasure.
Through selected partners and the associated schools and colleges, our leadership strand supports the development of emerging or existing leaders in schools. To support this strand of work, we commissioned a piece of work from the University of Winchester to help school leaders in secondary schools in England make creativity central to their students’ lives. The first strand of this work is a literature review.
