Builds on research already gathered

Teachers and school leaders collect a wealth of practice-based research on effective intervention strategies while completing the SAM Learning Targeted Intervention Framework. Participants can now use this work to secure a MirandaNet Fellowship as part of the school’s CPD programme. It’s a cost-effective way to provide CPD that doesn’t require time away from school.

“The reason MirandaNet has partnered with SAM Learning is to provide a forum for classroom teachers and policy leaders to reflect on their practice and publish evidence on effective classroom strategies and improved impact on learning.”
