This one day, intensive, interactive programme will enable participants to investigate and understand the costs, evidence-base and impact of the many recent classroom-based initiatives that have been used in our efforts to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers and to consider afresh the differences between outstanding and unsuccessful schools.
The course will be delivered by Ed Lott. Ed is an ex-headteacher and is a National College Consultant Leader with over thirty years’ experience in education and professional development training.
