Programme of Action Research to inform evaluation of the Additional Learning Needs Pilot
Research on the Individual Development Plan (IDP) expanded testing phase
Relelase date: 02 April 2014
The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the IDP process within the context of the “whole system” approach. It was structured as a piece of research, rather than an evaluation of the pilots
Robust trialling phase
Relelase date: 23 August 2013
In 2009 four pilot projects were set up as part of a programme of action research designed to inform and enable reform of the statutory framework. Through this pilot local authorities undertook a ‘robust trialling phase’ (the subject of this evaluation), with the aim of trialling a ‘whole systems’ approach that incorporated each aspect of the work developed by the pilot projects.
The approach required close work with stakeholders to identify what was working and what was not working so well, in order to develop solutions based on the findings. This report draws together the analysis in one place, although findings have been used throughout the process.
