This methodological paper describes the development of the evaluation of a teacher-focused intervention designed to widen participation in HE for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Data collection and analysis is ongoing and preliminary findings will be presented. The evaluation is part of a larger research project, the Sutton Trust Research and Evaluation Framework, which aims to monitor and evaluate the impact of a number of interventions. Teacher summer schools offer residential training to teachers with the aim of increasing attendance at research intensive universities for disadvantaged students. As part of the framework, we also track applications to a student summer school programme and will report on whether engagement with the teacher intervention affects applications to the student intervention. We present geographical mapping of the reach and impact of the programme. The evaluation also includes surveys and interview-based case studies; we present initial survey findings and discuss the developing evaluation methodology.
