A small-scale randomised controlled trial was carried out in the Manchester area to evaluate the effects of the PEN Home Learning Project on children’s development during their time in nursery. Researchers found that taking part in the intervention had a significant effect on the child’s home learning environment, measured by learning activities the parents reported they do at home with their children.
Fairer Fees assesses reforms to student finance that would introduce lower fees for less well-off students and reintroduce maintenance grants, and analyses how this could increase fairness and widen access to higher education.
The Sutton Trust has produced and commissioned over 200 pieces of research on policy and practice across the broad and complex area of social mobility – from the early years through to university access – reflecting the varied obstacles facing young people from non-privileged backgrounds.
Our research has produced some astonishing statistics which reveal the current state of low social mobility in the UK and the disproportionate representation of the most affluent independent school students in top universities and professions.
In this way, our research informs government, educational practitioners and policy-makers, helping to shape education and employment policy and practice.
