  • Release date: 6 December 2010
This is the largest single programme of educational research ever commissioned in the UK.

The programme consisted of 52 separate large scale projects, covering every part of the education system from early years to lifelong learning.

As the TLRP moved into its closing stages, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Welsh Educational Research Network, came together to commission a final project designed to explore the implications of the findings from this major research programme for Welsh educational policy and practice.

Four teams of researchers from across Wales have reviewed the findings from the TLRP in relation to four key areas of Welsh policy.

  • The Foundation Phase.
  • Improving Teaching for the 7–14 age range.
  • Social Inclusion.
  • Improving Learning by Taking Account of Learners’ Perspectives.

The outcome of the reviews is a series of posters and briefing papers aimed at bringing findings from this major research programme to policy makers and practitioners across Wales.
