Our aim is to work effectively with local schools to improve educational outcomes.
The Oxford Education Deanery facilitates the continuing professional development of teachers at all career stages in local schools through supporting their engagement in and with research. The Deanery promotes an exciting knowledge exchange between researchers at the University of Oxford and teachers in local schools to better improve student outcomes. This is achieved through three different strands:
1. Initial Teacher Education: A programme of teacher education leading to the award of a PGCE qualification through the Oxford Internship Scheme. Find out more here.
2. Continuing Professional Development: Research-engaged training opportunities for newly qualified and established teachers through three different schemes; NQT induction programme, Action Research Fellowships and the Enhanced Masters in Learning and Teaching. Find out more here.
3. Research: Carrying out research projects linking the Department of Education at the University of Oxford, local schools and other University of Oxford subject departments. The aim is to identify the current needs in schools and use the findings to inform and benefit teaching and learning in local schools. Find out more here.
“Through research, teachers become reflective practitioners and the process is as important as the outcome.”
Eluned Harries, Research Champion and Assistant Headteacher at Matthew Arnold School
