Dirk and I had a really good meeting with David Jackson and Jan McKenley-Simpson from the NCSL looking at the 'Next Practice' Project at the Central Leeds Learning Federation...

We ranged across an enormous area and agreed that what was emerging from the projects across the country was that the way forward was to start local and to develop authority structures and services accordingly. My learning from a fantastic meeting was about focus and discipline and a recognition that while we undoubtedly are one of the most creative organisations I have ever worked in, that brings with it a real need to get better at a more disciplined and focused approach to evaluating, learning and cascading the outcomes.
