National organisations

TLRP liaised with high-leverage organisations in each part of the UK and in relation to all educational sectors.  The table below illustrates this, as of 2008.
Such bodies frequently brought wide-ranging experience of the issues being investigated and had their own tailored dissemination infrastructures. They often provided both expertise and strategic advice during a project, and some offered impact support when projects moved towards their conclusion.
Relationships with national organisations were enhanced by TLRP links with practitioners and other liaison activity.
