09:30–16:00 on 27 April 2019

‘ResearchED Durrington – Making evidence count for the classroom teacher’

In recent years there has been a significant shift in the teaching profession – one that is to be applauded. A growing number of teachers and school leaders have become interested in engaging with the research evidence around education and cognitive science and using this to improve their practice. This is a really welcome development. The experience that a child receives in school is too important to be left to chance. It will shape their future, for better or worse. With this in mind, effective teaching should not be based on hunches or guesses. It should instead draw from the wisdom of our most successful teachers and the available research evidence. This is what researchEd Durrington plans to bring you – effective evidence informed strategies that can be taken straight back to your classroom. […]

Training programme – Improving behaviour and attendance

10:00–15:00 on 1 November 2018

This innovative programme provides a comprehensive overview of the most important research evidence in education, including the EEF toolkit, so that school leaders can devise a high impact CPD programme (topics include metacognition, memory and mindset). The programme will support you with a range of evidence-based tools to help you lead learning with success and improve your CPD programme. […]

This will be a three day programme aimed at anybody with a literacy responsibility including secondary literacy leaders, subject leaders and classroom teachers. The training will explore approaches to reading, writing and vocabulary development through the lens of robust research evidence. There will be a particular focus on methods to use with secondary students who currently struggle to access the literacy demands of the key stage three and four curriculum. […]
