Putting Evidence to Work
This interactive session, led by Prof. Jonathan Sharples, will help schools implement evidence-informed approaches in line with their vision for school improvement. Delegates will learn how to use evidence to identify improvement priorities and select new approaches. We will consider how to implement programmes and practices through careful planning and preparation, so they have the best chance of success. Come ready to learn, engage and be challenged!
