The NFER and SecEd Research Insights articles offer a wealth of evidence-based, best practice and advice covering a range of whole-school and classroom issues. The latest article, published in April 2017, focuses on life after levels in secondary schools and offers advice and resources to help schools develop their own effective and bespoke approaches to assessment.

  • What lessons we can schools and teachers learn from the PISA international rankings.
  • A look at the government's Apprenticeship reforms – we ask just how ready employers and providers are to deliver.
  • Teacher retention – offering insights into the factors that lead to higher teacher retention in a school and why teachers choose to leave the profession.
  • Academy conversion – research into whether academy status in itself can raise standards and outcomes in a school.
  • What effective school-to-school partnerships and collaborations look like and practical advice for creating and maintaining partnerships.
