The Institute for Effective Education

The Institute for Effective Education (IEE) is an independent charity working to improve education for all children by promoting the use of evidence in education policy and practice.

We have a new website and a new role

Our new website and refreshed visual identity signifies a new chapter for the IEE. We are still based at the University of York, but as an independent charity, we are now focused on improving teaching and learning for all children by working closely with schools to support the development and use of effective and efficient approaches.

Come and work with us! We are currently looking for a Research Schools Facilitator to manage a network of Research Schools throughout England.
