Use of data and evidence in education in England - implementation, support, and the new inspection framework

| 5 December 2019 | 8:30am - 1:00pm
Central London
Hosted by: 
Westminster Education Forum

This timely seminar will bring out latest thinking on the use of data, evidence and research in teaching, learning and improving pupil outcomes. It takes place with increased emphasis from the Department for Education and Ofsted on implementing and developing an evidence-based approach to teaching, but with concerns that not enough schools are engaging.

The conference will be an early opportunity for delegates to assess how Ofsted’s new research backed inspection framework is working in practice following its introduction this September.

As government seeks to reduce the workload for schools associated with data management, delegates will consider approaches to dealing with practical issues for the use of data and evidence in the classroom, including:

  • managing teacher time and resources;
  • how best to provide teachers with access to both educational data and research; and
  • what can be done to convert this into explicit knowledge for teachers to interact with and utilise.

Attendees will also discuss how new and current teachers can be better equipped with the skills to effectively collect and utilise data within the classroom as the Government seeks to create a new range of National Professional Qualifications for current teachers to support their professional development.

Speakers include Professor Daniel Muijs, Deputy Director, Research and Evaluation, Ofsted; Chris Tweedale, Chief Executive, GEP Academies; Darren Northcott, National Office for Education, NASUWT;  Murray Morrison, Founder, Tassomai; and Vijita Patel, Principal and National Leader of Education, Swiss Cottage School and Development & Research Centre, London. The session is chaired by Lord Storey, Liberal Democrat Lords Spokesperson (Education). 

The event is CPD certified. More details are available at the event's website.
