We are delighted to announce that VNET have formed an official partnership with Norwich Research School and Evidence Based Education. Through this partnership we are offering both the Assessment Lead and Assessment Essentials Programmes – sustained professional development and support – to schools, academies and colleges seeking to make their assessment approach more efficient in supporting teaching and learning. We are delighted to confirm that our member schools will be able to claim a discount on the cost of either Programme.

To kick start the programme, at our conference on 17 January 2020, Professor Rob Coe will deliver the keynote address and Professor Stuart Kime will run a workshop with you to start the work in your school. Book here Leading Change Conference in January 2020!

The professional development programme will then include:

  • Two places per school on the training course: one for a senior leader and one for a subject lead
  • The training course is delivered via an online portal, allowing your staff to complete learning at their pace and convenience, collaborating with each other throughout
  • In addition, the workshop at the 2020 conference, there will be an additional workshop/evaluation event with Professor Stuart Kime, in Norwich to close the programme in January 2021
  • Subsequent discounted access for your school to a related programme aimed at classroom teachers

Evidence Based Education’s mission is “to improve learner outcomes, worldwide and for good” by enhancing the quality of teaching and learning through innovative, impactful and engaging professional learning. The Assessment Lead Programme enables school leaders to make their school assessment approach more efficient, enabling staff to make more reliable judgements about what pupils know, can do, and need next. The Programme was a BETT Award 2019 finalist in the category Whole-school aids for learning, teaching and assessment. Evidence Based Education was recently honoured with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
