Teaching Sprints Collective Impact
A Bespoke 6-9 MONTH PROGRAM

Establishing a process in schools that builds routines for evidence-informed teacher collaboration and practice improvement
Providing school and middle leaders with the leadership skills and knowledge they need to facilitate the process on an ongoing basis
Ensuring that evidence of teacher practice improvement and student progress are captured during the program and built into a review of impact at the end of the program
Consistent with the Teaching Sprints approach, the program is designed to be highly practical, collaborative and job-embedded.
