More education projects

In recent years we have funded a number of education projects which fall outside our immediate priority areas and cross over with other areas of our work. 

For example, we are funding the University of Oxford to undertake research on the educational outcomes of looked after children, and the Institute of Fiscal Studies to explore the cost and benefits of different teacher training routes.

Other examples include research into the experience of primary school children with statements of special educational needs, a study of child language brokering, and a project on post-16 learning among refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

You can also find publications from past projects such as the Nuffield Languages Inquiry and Nuffield Languages Programme. The Inquiry, chaired by Sir Trevor McDonald, reviewed the UK's capability in languages, and the Programme was established to implement its recommendations through a programme of strategic grant-making.
