This is a collaborative, exploratory regional project. It aims to facilitate cross-sector debate with local agencies, companies and consortiums on the inclusion of appropriate training in digital skills plans, to help learners to make informed decisions on sharing their data.
This initiative is designed to help us all, working on research with distant, diverse and different people, communities and cultures, to work together fairly and openly
TALK Derby is a programme of support to strengthen the development of speech, language and communication skills in the early years in Derby. Its overall aim is to increase the social mobility of children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Derby.
The purpose of the study is to produce a comprehensive and accurate picture of the Progress 8 gap between disadvantaged students and their peers in English secondary state schools.
The overarching objective of the research was to measure the effectiveness of the Families Programme and its impact on families and practitioners.
The University of Wolverhampton was commissioned by NHS Scotland to evaluate the reach of play@home, explore the attitudes and beliefs of vulnerable families on the purpose and importance of play and find out if, and in what ways, vulnerable parents/carers are supported to access and experience play@home.
The Education Observatory implemented an impact evaluation of the Young Dads TV Project (YDTV) interventions on Young Dads (YDs) and stakeholder organisations. YDTV was a project initiated by Media for Development to improve young fathers’ visibility and recognition and help address the complex web of challenges and barriers which all too often result in young fathers being distant figures in their children’s lives.
We began evaluating North Yorkshire County Council and Harrogate and District Foundation Trust’s young parenting programme in collaboration with colleagues from Northumbria University in February 2018.
Between 2017 and 2020 we evaluated Headstart in Wolverhampton, part of a ground-breaking £8.8m project funded nationally by Big Lottery, which focused on improving young people’s resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
