  • OUR CHALLENGE We implement tools for learning We deliver staff development We write support material We visit schools & talk to staff How can we tell if this activity has changed anything?
  • OUR CHALLENGE Prioritising activities • Avoid spending time on low impact areas Identifying areas of low/high uptake • And discovering why Assess whether our activity affects things • Evidence for senior managers Building business cases • For additional tools or resources • Evidence for deprecating obsolete tools
