  • We have completed the first three sections of the Assessment Lead Programme and are really enjoying it! It is really clear and I like the fact that it is drip feeding me the information through smaller sections. It is also great to have the ideas founded on reliable research and peer-reviewed articles.

  • Schools desperately need this kind of clear guidance to question the how and the what of their assessment practices. Lots of areas of my direct work will be affected by the Assessment Lead Programme, including pedagogy and supporting schools with learning, curriculum design and questioning their assessment practices.

  • The Assessment Lead Programme was easily one of the most difficult courses I have been on. However, I can tell you with 100% certainty that it has been the best. Thank you to the entire Evidence Based Education team, for your relentless drive towards revolutionising CPD and your work in leading the quest for evidence-based practice in education. Awesome.

  • Thank you so much for your work on the Assessment Lead Programme - it is superb. I love the content and form; you have created a fantastic course!

  • Before the Assessment Lead Programme, I thought I knew assessment, but I didn't. Put simply, without good assessment, you cannot have good teaching and learning.

  • We have gone through ALP, and the programme has really opened my eyes. I’m now rereading the content for the third or fourth time, we're hoping to put more staff on future cohorts, and it is absolutely the right thing for all schools to do.

  • The EBE Team, led by Stuart Kime, has played an invaluable role in the establishment of the Research School network. Their background, working in both research and practice, has enabled them to provide first-rate support to Research Schools across the country in understanding the value of evidence in school improvement. The EEF first contracted Stuart in 2013 to help develop tools and resources to support school leaders in conducting evaluations. Since then, both he and EBE have acted as developer, consultant and training provider for the EEF and Research Schools network, delivering exemplary support and expertise.
