Teaching schools evaluation: the final report

In this Centre for Research in Educational Leadership and Management seminar, Professor Qing Gu and Dr Lindsey Smethem, School of Education, will report the findings from a two-year study (2013-15) into the work of teaching schools and their alliances commissioned by the National College for Teaching and Leadership.

The broad aim of the study was to investigate the effectiveness and impact of teaching schools on improvement, and identify the quality and scope of external support that are required to enhance these. This was achieved through combining qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis derived from three research activities:

  • case studies of 26 teaching schools alliances
  • a national survey of the first three cohorts of 345 teaching school alliances
  • secondary research and analysis of national performance and inspection results
