Evidence underpinning this approach

All our courses are delivered by experts in their field and the various ideas, theories, techniques and strategies are founded in educational research.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Teachers can match up their progress in the classroom against their memo to me (what they aim to action from this course at their school). Another copy of this will be sent to all teachers 7-8 weeks after the course with form inviting them to assess/analyse implementation and learning so far and plans how to take things forward. This is for personal as well as professional development.

Follow-up activities and support

Group feedback during the course is circulated to participants and they are made aware of new research or developments in that particular field of education (that could be taken further, i.e. professional enquiry and/or university accreditation).
