The old NTRP website [ARCHIVED]

 This website is supported by the Centre for the Use of Research and Evidence in Education (CUREE). The web platform on which supports it is obsolescent and would have to be rebuilt and then maintained. This is inefficient and expensive so we at CUREE have decided to consolodate the NTRP materials into the main CUREE website. They continue to be separately available Click here to go to the NTRP web pagesThis site will contiune to be accessible as a ARCHIVE for the remainder of the year after wihich it will be closed down. All the NTRP teacher research reports will continue to be available via the CUREE websiteThe National Teacher Research Panel was set up about 15 years ago by CUREE supported by a group of national education agencies most of which no longer exist. It had three main goals:

  • To ensure that all research in education takes account of the teacher perspective
  • To ensure a higher profile for research and evidence informed practice in government, academic and practitioner communities
  • To increase the number of teachers engaged in and with the full spectrum of research activity.

Over the several years of its existence, the Panel, supported by its expert advisers in CUREE, has helped and encouraged dozens of teachers and school leaders to do high quality but practical research. The Panel also helped them report their findings succinctly, in plain English and focused on relevance to other practitioners. The results of that work can be found on this website.With the advent of the Coalition Government of 2010 and ever since, those support agencies have been dismantled and government funding withdrawn. The Panel no longer meets but CUREE has maintained the legacy of its work on this website. It is the nature of research that it usually has a pretty long shelf life so a large fraction of the material here remains useful and valide especially in the international context where most other jurisdictions (certainly in Europe are only now waking up to the value of practitioner focused research. Much of the teacher originated but high quality research reported here remains unique
