The Benefits

What are the benefits for my school?

The Visible Learningplus Whole School Programme will transform your organisation, accelerating the process of individual and whole-school change. It does this by building the capacity of:

  • Learners to learn
  • Teachers to teach
  • Leaders to lead
  • Systems to improve

So what’s different about Visible Learningplus?

For Teachers

  • Visible Learningplus shifts the focus from teaching to pupil learning
  • Impact data informs classroom practice at all stages
  • In school variation becomes understood (between and within classes)
  • Feedback to teachers on where to focus next is based upon pupil learning outcomes

For Leaders

  • Your school development plan becomes based on rates of pupil progress
  • What happens in the classroom informs the system plan
  • An effective framework is established for future strategies and initiatives
  • Learning Interventions become measurable at school level

For Pupils

  • Become assessment-capable, so that they can answer the three big questions: where am I going? How am I doing? Where to next?
  • They engage with a shared school language that helps them articulate their thinking, thus making learning visible.
  • They develop an understanding of the learning process and strategies so that they ‘know what to do, when they don’t know what to do’.
  • Their thirst for learning increases as they are equipped to embrace challenge, learn from error, seek feedback and have ownership of the learning process.
  • This programme is appropriate for everyone in the school: from newly-qualified teachers right through to senior leaders.
