CourseMonitoring Your Subject Through Pupil Voice
Led byAdrian Gray, MA (Cantab) National and International Consultant.
DetailsThis course for new and developing subject leaders

‘Pupil Voice’ activities are often done in schools but are rarely used effectively as part of a co-ordinated monitoring and self-evaluation programme for subjects.

With the new need to evaluate the impact of the curriculum, they are now an essential component in any drive to improve and yet too often ‘pupil voice’ work merely results in anecdotal information.

This course for new and developing subject leaders looks at how it can be best used as a component in a strategically planned range of monitoring activities. This is a one-hour course focused on yielding specific improvements in practice.
