26 March 2012 - City Hall, London

The past year has seen a number of significant policy initiatives to support the development and dissemination of evidence-based programmes in education and children's services. The UK government's recent review of Early Intervention, led by Graham Allen MP and widely endorsed across all political parties, sets out to identify and expand the implementation of evidence-based interventions that address issues such as early literacy, parenting and drug/alcohol abuse. At the same time, the newly formed Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is planning to invest up to £200m for cost-effective programmes that improve outcomes for pupils in the most challenging circumstances.

With such practical policy support now emerging, we need a much clearer understanding of the challenges, opportunities and objections to getting research-proven approaches working within frontline organisations.

The event aims to give participants a better understanding of the barriers to successful implementation of evidence-based programmes and some potential solutions for tackling them through presentations and round table discussions.
