Evidence for Learning: The next phase of E4L

The next phase of E4L

An update on the next phase of Evidence for Learning.

A message from E4L on its next phase.

News •2 minutes •

E4L was established in 2015 by non-profit Social Ventures Australia (SVA) to support busy educators – especially educational leaders – increase learning for children by improving the quality, availability and use of evidence in schools and early learning settings. E4L has had a special focus on supporting children and young people experiencing disadvantage, to help bridge the gap between the learning outcomes of children from lower-income backgrounds and those from higher-income backgrounds.

We are very proud of E4L’s achievements over the last eight years. E4L now has 26,000 frequent users of its materials and there have been over 150,000 downloads from the E4L website since 2015. In addition to publishing over 175 evidence-informed resources for educators and delivering over 425 professional learning events to a total of over 16,000 educators since 2015, E4L has commissioned three Randomised Control Trials, two pilot studies, four systematic reviews and two research investigations on topics of importance for educators.

It is now time for E4L to move to its next phase outside of SVA.

For the next two years, the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) international partnerships team will ensure that the E4L evidence assets and resources remain available for Australian educators and others at no charge. The EEF has been a supporter of E4L since the beginning through licensing of the Toolkits and the provision of technical and operational guidance and support. While the website and some professional learning support will continue, E4L will no longer publish regular updates via email or social media channels, nor will it publish new evidence resources.

A small number of associated professional learning providers are available to support Australian educators to use E4L’s evidence assets and resources. If you are interested in this kind of professional learning support, please contact the EEF using this form.

E4L and SVA would like to sincerely thank you for your support of E4L, and the movement to improve educators’ access to evidence. We hope that you will continue to advance this important work through your own networks in the future.
