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?
- 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
- 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
- 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.
