Touchconsulting Ltd manage Practice Development Groups in the East and West Midlands on behalf of the Education and Training Foundation.
PDGs form part of the Education and Training Foundation’s Practitioner Research pathway.
Practitioners can join the research pathway at various points; including practitioner-led enquiry, small-scale research projects or postgraduate research
PDGs sit firmly within practitioner-led enquiry, and are driven by participants who work collaboratively to undertake a maths/English inquiry related to their learners and teaching practice. They plan, do and review; regrouping and discussing what worked (and didn’t) with their PDG members, and then go again.
