A £40,000 fund to support two high-potential, early-stage interventions which aim to improve parental engagement in maths and maths outcomes for secondary students (11-16 years old), using digital technology.
Through this fund we want to find some of the most effective digital technology interventions for improving parental engagement in their child’s maths education, and which of these interventions can have a positive impact on maths outcomes for young people.
This £40,000 fund will support two high-potential, early-stage interventions which use digital technology and aim to improve parental engagement in maths and maths outcomes for secondary students (11-16). Please find further details in the selection criteria. The financial support will last for a period of 6 months and grantees will have access to non-financial support provided by Nesta and Tata.
This fund supports grantees with existing early-stage interventions that have shown potential for significant impact on parental engagement in maths and maths outcomes. We are open to supporting organisations that are in the early-stages of developing their intervention e.g they have tested it in one school/location and have received some initial positive results and would like to test it further. We are also open to supporting organisations who have tested their intervention in more schools but would like to test it further or pilot the intervention in a new context e.g they have implemented it in primary schools and would now like to test it in a secondary school setting. The Solving Together grants will support grantees with their:
- Implementation – testing their projects in more locations or a new context in order to further improve and refine them and reach more schools, parents and students
- Evidence – supporting organisations to gather further insights into the effectiveness of their intervention, that can be used to improve the intervention
