RLE Projects

In the second year of the programme, participants will create and pilot an intervention or improvement project with a group of pupils tailored to the context of your school.

In the third year of the programme, they will roll-out an evaluated version of their second year project to a wider number of pupils, deliver CPD and share their research evaluation findings with colleagues. They are supported to do this by our team of experts in the field.
