Children of the 2020's - Longitudinal panel study

Expressions of interest are sought to undertake the design and delivery of the first panel of a new longitudinal study, the Education and Outcomes Panel Study (EOPS). The EOI is specifically to invite expressions of interest for EOPS - A (Children of the 2020's), the first panel which will collect data from parents of children who are age approximately 9 months and follow them until ages 5/6 i.e. the earliest years through to primary school. Whilst there will be synergies between the various panel of EOPS, Children of the 2020's is a stand-alone project. The key objectives of the Children of the 2020's study will be to provide evidence for policy areas relating to; babies and infants, early childhood education and care, primary school and disadvantage. The study will utilise a random probability sampling approach with a first wave sample of approximately 8500. It is envisaged that the first wave and at least one subsequent wave will be wholly face to face with the remaining waves a mixture of face to face, phone and web survey. Project design and set up will commence from late November with piloting in April and mainstage fieldwork planned for June - October 2021, subject to agreed design and approach with the appointed contractor. Further details can be found on the attached EOI advert. DEADLINE FOR EOI - 11.59 pm on 07/08/2020
