researchED @ the Teach First, Teacher Development Conference, Leeds

July 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’re proud to announce that researchED will once again be working with the charity Teach First to present a strand of sessions at the 2018 Teacher Development Conference in Leeds on the 24th July. Aimed at teachers in the early stages of their careers, these sessions will introduce beginning (and beyond) teachers to evidence bases that inform a variety of key areas affecting classrooms, students and learning. From assessment to policy, we’re confident there’s something to interest and inspire everyone.
