Quick Reference

Projects and curriculum developments in subjects such as science education are initiated and supported by the Nuffield Foundation, a body dedicated to the funding of curriculum research and development. In the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s the Foundation developed science and mathematics projects and produced science curriculums for use in schools. These included the syllabus for General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level and Advanced Level examinations in science subjects. Since the introduction of the national curriculum and its related programme of study for science, the Foundation has focused instead on the funding of science‐related and other educational projects.
