Investigating Links in Achievement and Deprivation (ILiAD) is a research study funded by the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister (OFMDFM). Initiated in 2012, ILiAD will be coming to completion this Spring 2015.
The study, carried out by a team of researchers from the School of Education QUB, Stranmillis University College and independent consultants, with the support of an Advisory group, has aimed to understand the factors and dynamics that contribute to differential achievement in seven Ward areas of Northern Ireland that are within the top 20% of Wards on the Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure 2010. There will be a presentation of the preliminary findings and an opportunity to contribute to a round table discussion on the emergent findings and issues.
