This immersive school visit will include:

  • Introductory talk – overview of school context and NACE Challenge journey; cornerstones of more able policy and practice; transformative initiatives and their impact; approach to CPD, ongoing school improvement and maintaining consistently high-quality teaching and learning.
  • Learning walk – up to two hours guided tour in a small group, with a focus on effective practice in provision for more able learners and high-quality challenge in and beyond the classroom.
  • Q&A – opportunity to ask questions about the school and aspects covered earlier in the day, as well as questions about the NACE Challenge Framework and/or Challenge Award accreditation and reaccreditation.

Questions can be submitted in advance and will be used to tailor the focus of the day. Alongside key staff members from the host school, a NACE Associate will be available to provide additional guidance.
