We can manage all kinds of reform projects, from large-scale initiatives to targeted smaller interventions. We work through the stages of our methodology to design and recommend bespoke practical development plans that can deliver real benefits for your educational system.
Every project begins with us listening and observing. We make sure we understand:
To understand the wider context surrounding your education objectives we will visit your country to see your schools and meet with key stakeholders. We will ask lots of questions, and challenge any existing assumptions.
We will look for things that are already working well, and identify where there are skills and capacity to be nurtured. In short, we will do everything we can to make sure that our recommendations are the right ones for your country and situation.
Our recommendations are tailored to your unique situation and based on:
We understand there is no one-size-fits-all approach to changes in education. We recommend achievable and effective solutions that bring about tangible improvements in education.
We offer a range of development approaches depending on how much support you need.
We know that in the real world there are compromises to be made. Budgets have to be managed, and deadlines have to be met. We can tailor our development approaches to suit different situations and projects of all shapes and sizes.
We will work with you to implement changes locally and make sure they are effective.
We are experienced in managing large-scale and complex education projects. We use proven project management tools and governance frameworks that ensure the success of every project.
Our Cambridge technical teams draw on a large pool of experienced consultants and ensure all work is consistently at the required standard using our quality assurance processes.
Monitoring is the systematic collection and analysis of information during the implementation phase of a project. It helps to identify how implementation is progressing, is an invaluable tool for good management and it provides a useful base for evaluation. Evaluation then assesses the impact of the programme, measured against agreed quality indicators.
We work with you to agree the framework for monitoring and evaluation, based on shared objectives. By collaborating with you on the design and interpretation of the evaluation, we can collect evidence and draw conclusions to support the understanding and implementation of education change.
It is important that any changes we recommend are sustainable in the long term. We will work with you to develop the necessary knowledge and skills in your team so that you can operate independently of Cambridge.
We can develop your capacity through face-to-face training, online training, immersion training, on-the-job work or a blend of approaches. Our flexible approach means that our role can evolve over time so that we are available to take the role of a ‘critical friend’ – working with you and supporting you for the long or short term, whenever you need us.
