Research and development:

The London West Alliance will promote a rigorous, collaborative and sustainable inquiry based research culture in order to develop and evaluate innovative educational practice leading to discernible benefits for our schools and our pupils.

The LWA was involved with National Research Themes R&D Project 2012-2014 led by the National College of Teaching and Leadership; The London Centre for Leadership in Learning; Sheffield Hallam University; and the Institute of Education. The broad theme we were engaged with was professional learning that leads to consistently great pedagogy. Our case study consisted of an exploration of the factors which influenced changes in teachers’ practice and an examination of the role of peer collaboration within the context of such change.
