Evidence informed project planning and evaluation

11 February 2020 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


Teachers and schools are continually introducing new practices, but how do you know if they are an improvement on the existing approach? Without a robust evaluation it is not possible to tell whether a new approach is more effective than what it has replaced. So evaluation is vital, because by understanding the impact of new practices on pupil outcomes schools can make better-informed decisions about how best to allocate resources.

This unique four day programme is being held in York for a national audience:

Day 1 – Tuesday 11th Feb
Day 2 – Thursday 5th March
Day 3 – Monday 30th March
Day 4 – Monday 6th July

It  will support you how to carry out a robust evaluation of a new approach in your school. You will learn how to:

  • Identify the causes of issues or areas for improvement in your school,
  • Engage critically with existing evidence to identify possible solutions,
  • Plan and carry out a robust evaluation,
  • Analyse and interpret your results.

This process will not only help you to understand the impact of the approach you have evaluated, it will also help you to become more critical about what is (or isn’t) working in your school or classroom and how you can tell, and understand the challenges of implementing changes in your school.

In addition to the four training days, each delegate will receive up to two hours of mentoring support from Dr Alicia Shaw, Innovation and Evaluation Lead at the Institute for Effective Education.
