Colleagues from Sheffield Hallam University are currently undertaking research funded by the Wellcome Trust to develop a greater understanding of how teacher professional development can lead to sustained change in schools. The aims of this research study are to:
- identify ‘mechanisms for change’ at policy levels and in school environments that influence implementation of professional development innovations;
- develop implementation guidance, informed by the identified mechanisms, to support change for sustained, embedded improvement in teachers’ professional development in England.
Thank you for helping them with this research.
