EEF, . (2017) Education Endowment Foundation (Web Page)

Abstract:

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is an independent charity dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement. We aim to: raise the attainment of 3-18 year-olds, particularly those facing disadvantage; develop their essential life skills;
and prepare young people for the world of work and further study.
We support teachers and senior leaders by providing free, independent and evidence-based resources designed to improve practice and boost learning.
We do this by generating evidence of what works to improve teaching and learning, funding rigorous trials of promising but untested programmes and approaches.
We then support schools, as well as early years and post-16 settings, across the country in using evidence to achieve the maximum possible benefit for young people.

EIF, . (2017) Early Intervention Foundation (Web Page)

Abstract:

Early intervention is about taking action as soon as possible to tackle problems for children and families before they become more difficult to reverse.
We focus on conception to early adulthood because intervention is not just about the early years but also about preventing adolescents and young adults from developing problems.
When a young person is developing and growing up, this is a crucial opportunity to provide them with the skills and support they need. It is much more difficult if they have dropped out of school, become involved with youth crime or developed a serious mental health problem.
Early intervention involves identifying children and families that may be at risk of running into difficulties and providing timely and effective support.
We want every family to develop an intergenerational cycle of positive parenting, relationships and behaviour.
Early intervention is about enhancing the capabilities of every parent to provide a supportive and enriching environment for their children to grow up in. Then the next generation has the best chance to flourish with the skills to engage in positive parenting themselves.
Its purpose is to improve the life chances of children and families and benefit society at large, whilst being cost-effective.
