What is NAHT Aspire?
NAHT Aspire is the NAHT’s own school improvement service and consists of a range of school improvement programmes and resources, designed to address schools’ varying school improvement needs. It has been developed between NAHT and EdisonLearning as a collaborative partnership to build capacity within participating schools and bring about long term sustainable improvement. From its origins in 2013 as an independently evaluated three year DfE pilot programme through to its current range of programmes and resources, NAHT Aspire provides proven strategies for school improvement.
At the centre of the NAHT Aspire model is the EdisonLearning Five Strand Design™. Developed from international research into the features of highly effective schools the five Strands include Leadership, Pedagogy and Curriculum, Learning Environment, Assessment for Learning and Student and Family Support. This produces an interconnected and holistic model that builds capacity and capability within the school with a clear focus on improving outcomes for learners.
