The EEFective Kent Project is working with Durrington Research School to appoint a Kent-based Associate Research School in 2021. The appointed Associate Research School will operate as an associate of Durrington Research School to build a strong network of collaborative, evidence-informed practice across Kent. The Associate Research School will be funded jointly by the Education Endowment Foundation and Kent County Council through the EEFective Kent Project. 

A Q&A session will be taking place on Monday, 11 October 2021 (4pm – 5pm) which is aimed at prospective applicants where representatives from the EEF and Durrington Research School will be able to answer any queries and troubleshoot any issues with the application. If you would like to join the Q&A session please complete this short booking form. Outside of these two sessions, please direct any questions to info@​researchschool.​org.​uk

An Associate Research School works alongside a designated EEF Research Schools as part of the EEF Research School Network and can be a single school, a group of schools or, in some exceptional circumstances, a charitable organisation focused on school improvement (for example, a Teaching School constituted as a charity). With guidance from their designated Research School, Associate Research Schools provide support to other schools in their region to use research evidence to address challenges they may be facing within their settings. This support is provided through advice, signposting to the relevant evidence, training, and the provision of wrap-around support. To do this an Associate Research School receives training and support from their designated Research School.
