We are in the process of planning our training programmes for 2021 – 22. As always, we will cover a range of topics, with a view to supporting school leaders to use the research evidence, to address the challenges they are facing.

Next year, our training programmes will include a blend of face to sessions and online sessions, with gap tasks to complete in between the sessions:

  • Session 1 – whole day face to face session, at Durrington Research School.
  • Session 2 – two hour, online module
  • Session 3 – two hour, online module
  • Session 4 – two hour, online module
  • Session 5 – whole day face to face session, at Durrington Research School.

To help you find out more about the programmes, we will be offering some FREE taster sessions this term. Each of these taster sessions will:

  • Outline the structure and theory of change for the programme;
  • Explore the issues the programme will be looking to address;
  • Look at some of the evidence and approaches that will be explored throughout the programme.

The details of the programmes are outlined below, as well as information about how to book a place on the taster sessions. These taster sessions will all be online:
