As part of our development as an organisation, we have defined our vision, values and strategic objectives as a Teaching School Hub, which you can view here.
As part of this process, we have developed a Theory of Change that provides a logic model for what we do and this process has enabled us to distil the key outcomes that we are looking to achieve. It is important for us that our objectives and outcomes ‘do’ something: for us this means we now use the objectives to help decide what we do.
We have also used our key outcomes to shape a new approach to how we evaluate our programmes, both as specific events and the cumulative impact. Organisations like TSSW are historically not strong at evaluation and we want to address this with an ambitious new evaluation framework that enables us to accurately judge our impact.
We will publish details in the New Year. Supporting us on this journey has been ImpactEd – a national organisation with a mission to address the evaluation-deficit in education.
If you as a School or Trust would like to learn more, you can check out ImpactEd's website or contact us to find out more about what we have done.
