The challenge for all those involved in leading change, particularly transformational changes in practices, is to ensure that the gains made are sustained after the implementation phase of a PLD response.

One of the key determinants of sustaining change is to ensure that each new PLD response is connected to a coherent pedagogical framework.

This gallery focuses on the importance of developing an evidence-based pedagogical framework to use across all curriculum areas.
