What is Visible Learning (VL)?

Visible Learning+ is the only school improvement programme developed by Professor John Hattie and is available in the UK exclusively through Osiris.

Based on ground-breaking research into what actually works best in schools to improve learning and progress, VL is both the catalyst and the vehicle for positive change from the classroom through to a full school system. The very best in professional learning that implements a shared language of learning for every student, teacher and leader.

Visible Learning+ has been designed for school leaders and teachers seeking to embed the latest research to maximise learning. It is based upon the premise that every student should experience at least one year’s growth over the course of one school year.

Completed over three years, Visible Learning+ consists of a series of workshops and evaluations to provide the knowledge and tools to engage with John’s research and use evidence to evaluate instructional decisions.
