A large scale education RCT that continued through the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Lessons for delivery and evaluation can be found within. Loved working with the teams at @NIESRorg @EducEndowFoundn and @B_I_Tweets through all the challenges.

Important to consider IPE in ALL projects and especially important when impact evaluations are cancelled/ disrupted to ensure we get the most out of the learning and find out from the ground how things actually worked (or didn’t!)

Fascinating to study a parenting programme that could carry on throughout Covid-19 and still include a thorough implementation and process evaluation. The messages were positively received by parents but no impact on children’s educational outcomes were found.
