The Emerging Revolution Research Report

A report into the changing practices creating a revolution in how Appraisal, Performance Management and Professional Learning are undertaken in our schools.

Many schools are revising their approach to performance management. Our latest research considers the changes that are happening and how professional learning is moving centre stage.

In this report, we examine how changing processes in performance management and appraisal, alongside a greater focus on professional learning, might evolve such that professional learning becomes the top priority in conversations about performance and, therefore, one of the most important drivers for school improvement.

"One of the highest forms of accountability is the individual's professional accountability for the quality of their work. This fascinating report shows how this principle is being baked into appraisal and professional learning practices in schools and Trusts through the building of professional expertise. Rightly, we are increasingly seeing professional learning positioned at the heart of what schools and Trusts are doing to improve the quality of teaching and the curriculum in order to secure the best outcomes for young people."
Steve Rollett, Deputy CEO at The Confederation of School Trusts (CST)
