New round of LbQ innovation evaluation project grants

If you’ve got a problem, and a possible solution, we can help you find out whether or not it works.

Our new round of Learning by Questions (LbQ) innovation evaluation projects will support you all the way with the challenge of evaluating in-school change. We know that budgets and time are tight, and finding out what works in school can be challenging, so, building on our previous experience, we’ve developed an extensive package of training and support.

To be eligible for this round you will need:

  • a problem you would like to address
  • an outcome you are hoping to change, and
  • to be able to use LbQ as part of the project.

We will provide you with:

  • up to £5,000 per school to support your project
  • training and support on how to run the evaluation.

To find out more, please watch the recorded online evaluation twilight.

In this online twilight you will find out more about:

  • understanding your problem
  • using evidence to identify a potential solution
  •  using a theory of change to show how the solution will
    address the problem
  • more information on LbQ and the grants application

The twilight will enable you to come up with a short proposal for the project you would like to carry out. If that’s successful, we will invite you to an evaluation planning day (with cover costs and travel expenses sorted) to really nail down your evaluation. And beyond that you will receive further, ongoing support as your project continues.

Projects can be in primary and secondary, and are likely to be in English, maths or science. We would be particularly interested in projects addressing issues in English in primary schools.

Deadline for applications is 3 April 2020.
