The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement.
We do this by summarising the best available evidence in plain language for busy, time-poor teachers and senior leaders, generating new evidence of what works, and what doesn’t work, to improve teaching and learning. We support teachers and senior leaders across the country to use this evidence to achieve the maximum possible benefit for children and young people.

You will support a range of organisations with a structured process of development, bringing in expertise from partners and ensuring everything is joined-up with the rest of the programme pipeline.
