Impact at Scale Labs - Innovations For Learning Recovery

Impact at Scale Labs - Innovations For Learning Recovery is supporting organisations with solutions that improve learning recovery post COVID-19.

The Impact at Scale Labs - Innovations For Learning Recovery programme offers:

  • Intensive support: The GSF team network works with organisations to build and implement their scale strategy.   
  • Funding: £80,000 towards making the organisation’s scaling action plan a reality.  
  • Extended duration with no “cliff-edge”: Our intensive support lasts 18 months after which organisations continue to engage and learn as part of the GSF community.  
  • A focus on evidence: We measure and share evidence about each solution’s impact and about the scaling process. 
  • Relationships for scale: We support organisations to embed solutions in the broader system and connect them with funders.
