Evaluation of the Education Improvement Project
- Date: March 2008 - September 2008
- Client: Ocean New Deal for Communities
Papworth Research & Consultancy evaluated Ocean New Deal for Communities' Education Improvement Project. This six and a half year project aimed to raise pupils' educational attainment, increase learning participation and achievement, and increase parental involvement with school activities.
We examined what the project had achieved, how the achievements of the project varied between groups of the population, value for money, what got in the way of greater achievements, sustainability, partnership working and other process issues.
Our evaluation involved consultations with those involved in managing the project and elements within it, and with the beneficiaries of the project.
Our report documented the successes, challenges and learning of the project, and made recommendations for the management and delivery of future regeneration projects.
