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.

Based at the University of York, we are 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.

Funding is now open for the next round of LbQ innovation evaluation projects, with grants of up to £5,000 available. Find out more
