Learning Partnerships

School Improvement

A Learning Partnership recognises the potential power for school improvement when teachers’ practical wisdom and local knowledge is supported through critical engagement with public knowledge—including learning theory, research evidence, professional guidance, and policy.

Evidence indicates that school improvement requires sustained investment in the professional learning of teachers and support staff. Schools that develop an expansive workplace learning environment are able to transform themselves and help their pupils to achieve their full potential.
