Collective Efficacy


Collective Efficacy is now ranked as the most powerful influence on pupil achievement in the Visilbe Learning research. It is the belief that together teachers can positively impact pupil learning. When efficacy is high, teachers show greater persistence and are more likely to try new teaching approaches. Learn how to create the conditions for collective teacher efficacy and how you can yield over three years growth in pupil results in one school year.
