Assessing the Impact of Independent and State School Partnerships


There are 1,000s of partnerships in existence between schools in the UK. But very few schools truly understand the impact of these partnerships.

Even in the charity sector (where impact should be central to operations) impact evidence is often partial at best. Donna will be sharing her insights based on her research over the last 18 months. Schools have limited resources so it’s very important that they are directed to the most impactful activities.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
