HEADS YOU WIN
Researchers: Jim Campbell (WIE), Geoff Lindsay and Emma Phillips
This project was co-directed by Professor Jim Campbell, Warwick Institute of Education and Professor Geoff Lindsay, CEDAR. Funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, the initial stages of the project comprised an evaluation of the twelve projects funded by the Foundation as part of the Heads You Win programme. This sought to raise educational standards by the professional development of head teachers. Projects were led by local education authorities, or groups of schools acting in collaboration. The project’s first phase ended in December 2000 and a follow up study is being carried out over 2002-3 to examine the maintenance or further development of positive outcomes.
