We understand that schools want to design and shape any school improvement support to meet their particular challenges. The EEF and Research Schools work together to provide evidence-informed professional development for school leaders. 

Our content draws upon the extensive publications, tools and resources from the EEF and elsewhere, equipping leaders with the skills to identify areas of need, explore the evidence base for potential solutions, develop an implementation plan and monitor and evaluate changes. The content is built around core elements of understanding and applying evidence in practice, while being intentionally flexible to allow those involved in the Partnership to adapt and focus on the areas of evidence which are of interest to them. 

Together we can ensure the agreed programme and support is aligned with the evidence on effective professional development, allowing for sustained work and training over at least two terms.
