Challenge Partners

Challenge Partners has a mission to improve pupils' outcomes and reduce educational inequality through effective collaboration, enabling every pupil to experience the combined wisdom of the education system. 

To work towards this mission, they have collectively adopted these four core aims that guide what they do:

  • Improve pupils’ examination results at a rate above the national average and accelerate progress of the disadvantaged
  • Enable all their schools to improve at a rate above the national average
  • Create more national leaders and outstanding schools that fulfil the Teaching Schools criteria
  • Develop a world class, self-improving and sustainable system that contributes to national research and policy-making

Projects that the Herts & Bucks Challenge Partners hub are involved in are The Hegarty Maths Year 7 pilot project and Challenge the Gap. We will be working with the IOU, University of Cambridge (CamStar) over the coming academic year on a series of research projects focused upon ‘The effectiveness of Homework’; ‘Reducing workload and marking’; ‘Verbal feedback’; ‘The efficacy of rewards and sanctions’; ‘The alignment of student motivation to engagement in the lesson planning process’.

Women in Leadership : Be the Change

Brooke Weston TSA The Women Leading in Education Coaching Pledge is already making a difference to hundreds of aspiring female leaders.  Our goal is to expand the pool of willing, trained coaches even further. The more coaches we have, the more women can be empowered to gain the leadership roles they deserve.  Here's how we can achieve this goal together: Sign up to be a coach and encourage others to do so. Anyone can be a coach (male, female, teacher, leader, support staff, governors, trustees - any phase, any level of experience) so please spread the word far and wide: https://www.tscouncil.org.uk/coach-pledge/   Join our webinar on Monday 16th July at 7pm. The webinar will be a chance for coaches, coachees and anyone interested to hear all about the pledge, share success stories and ask any questions. The link will be posted on the Brooke Weston TSA website from Monday 9th July.  You can access the web page here.  You don't need to sign up for the webinar, just join us and ask questions via Twitter using the hashtag #coachingpledge. Please spread the word.    Join the conversation on Twitter.  Follow @bwteachschool and let us know how the Coaching Pledge is making a difference in your school or alliance. Look out for a whole day of #coachingpledge chat on Monday 16th July.     Share the success. Fancy writing a guest blog about how coaching can make the difference? Just let us know. We will be publishing our own coaching blog later this month, written by guest blogger Carly Waterman.
