Lesson study is a powerful approach to teacher professional development, in which teachers agree a research focus, collaboratively plan a lesson to test out a theory, observe the lesson and discuss their learning.  It is an approach that gives teachers agency, motivates them to learn and helps support continuous practice development.

Led by experienced lesson study practitioners, this programme helps schools get started with lesson study, providing them with a free practical handbook.  It then supports them to consider how to scale up and introduce lesson study as a whole school professional development approach.

We strongly advise schools to send two leaders onto the programme to ensure impact on practice. Primary and secondary schools welcome.

The programme is a partnership project between Big Education and Collaborative Lesson Research UK and Newham Learning.
