Evidence-based approaches to improving outcomes for disadvantaged learners with Jean Gross

Drawing on her vast experience of working with disadvantaged communities, Jean describes the path that many children take, from early language delays to persistent literacy and numeracy difficulties, which lead to progressive disengagement from learning and underachievement.

In this talk, Jean will set out how early intervention and low-cost, evidence-based, practical strategies can be used by teachers to transform outcomes for their disadvantaged students – essential for anyone working in education who is seeking equity for all their students.

Hosted by Dr Steve Murray, Lead Practitioner for Data and Research at Orchard School Bristol.
