phase 5

This phase (phase 5) will commence with reflection and the sharing of ideas with Austrian collaborators and a team of “critical friends” (headteachers, representatives from various sectors of the Austrian education system) as to how practices of school quality development and (head) teacher and SLT training in Austria might benefit from the project’s findings. This process is intended to generate proposals of relevance to school quality development and teacher training practices at various levels of the Austrian education system.

Alongside this specific dissemination phase, we have been sharing insights from the project since its inception, presenting its research design and initial findings from the qualitative study in a range of settings and issuing relatively brief publications aimed partly at practitioners in schools. The publication series ‘School Quality and Teacher Education Snapshots’ has the purpose of making academic findings from school effectiveness and improvement research accessible to school leaders and teachers. The Snapshots appear on the homepage of the SQTE project.
