Find out about our education projects and free teaching resources from the links on this page.

We also offer opportunities for school and college students to take part in STEM-related research over their summer holidays through our Nuffield Research Placements.

Our work in education includes funding research and supporting its translation into policy and practice. Our current focus is in science and mathematics, foundations for learning, and secondary education transitions.

In the past, we have worked in other subject areas including D&T, history, and languages, and further information is available on our curriculum projects page.
