Mel Liddell, Learning and Evaluation Manager, shares the purpose and impact of the mid-point evaluations which are designed in collaboration with authorities to reflect on the first year of the investment to inform the planning for the second year.
“The bespoke mid-point evaluation is designed to capture what science and STEM provision has worked well for practitioners, preferred professional learning delivery and what further support and/or professional learning they would like. It builds upon the baseline activity undertaken the previous year which established the Primary Science Development Officers’ (PSDO) action plans.
“The engagement from primary practitioners informs the evolution of the programme offering, ensuring RAiSE is meeting the science and STEM needs across the authority. It provides a solid grounding for ‘you said, we did’ approach.
