The Welsh Government has published our second formative evaluation report of the Pioneer Schools model. The Pioneer Schools model is an innovative approach that involves collaboration between national and regional partners and schools. The evaluation, which is ongoing, places an emphasis on providing real-time feedback on how the Pioneer Schools Model is working in practice. It aims to understand how the model is being delivered and to capture any learning that can inform subsequent stages of delivering the model.
The short report summarises our findings in relation to Curriculum and Professional Learning Pioneer activity from January 2016 to July 2017. The findings are based on fieldwork with 52 pioneer schools carried out from February to July 2017.
