EAS: School-based Curriculum Development through Professional Enquiry

Funded by South East Wales Education Achievement Service.

This project involves working with 37 school cluster in South East Wales to develop capacity in curriculum development using critical collaborative professional enquiry. The project will take the form of 4 workshops (repeated for a second cohort), along with support from the university for activity in schools. The goals are to: 1] raise the capacity of a group of teachers to act as leaders of the CCPE process; 2] produce some accessible resources to support their work; and 3] supervise, support and evaluate the subsequent cycles of professional enquiry. Dr Drew and Professor Priestley will lead this process, forming a project leadership team that also comprises 2-3 of the Pioneer Teachers who have already undertaken the previous EAS CCPE programme, and who have experience of applying this methodology to their practice.
