School improvement is not about quick fixes or buying in ad hoc professional development programmes. Accurately diagnosing the needs of your school, finding solutions based on sound evidence, paying careful attention to implementation and successfully monitoring and evaluating your approaches requires sustained support. 

EEF’s team of Regional Leads provide local support to develop Partnerships with our 37-strong network of Research Schools. Research Schools share their knowledge and expertise on effective teaching and provide evidence-informed support and training to bring research closer to schools in their area.
