A NEW EEF Guide for School Leaders

Navigating Effective Implementation

Have you ever tried to improve, change or implement something in your setting? If you have, I am sure, like many other school leaders, you realise how challenging this can be! Navigating the complexities of change can be a daunting task. However, this new report provides a roadmap, informed by robust evidence, that helps school leaders overcome the challenges and obstacles that often accompany change initiatives. It empowers educators to make informed decisions, backed by evidence and paves the way for meaningful and sustainable improvements.

The guidance report is based on an extensive review of evidence on implementation in schools. It outlines three key elements for effective implementation: the behaviours that drive implementation, the contextual factors that influence implementation, and a structured process to enact implementation.

Implementation is key and it is imperative to not only focus on what to implement but also on how to do it effectively. This article provides you with a summary of the latest insights and strategies from the guidance report.

These three elements work together. The process helps schools do implementation. The cross-cutting behaviours and contextual factors help them do it well.

If you would like to find out more about this brilliant resource you can book a place on one of our Implementation sessions. We have also launched a spotlight on leadership email series. In sync with the release of the eagerly anticipated EEF Implementation Guidance Report, we’re excited to introduce a brief weekly email series. Each Wednesday, you’ll receive a concise, three-minute read featuring leadership research insights, thought-provoking reflection questions, and additional recommended reading materials to enrich your professional journey.

Please complete the form here to receive them.

We hope you are able to utilise the guidance report to support you in leading change effectively in your organisation. Please share it with anyone you think may benefit from using it because utilising the recommendations in the guidance report, could ensure that every student receives the quality of education they deserve.
