Taking action

What can we do differently to make enough of a difference? Something has to change in the student’s learning environment for their experiences to change.

This is the time to put new learning into informed focussed and team led action.

Creating an action plan is a team effort and will have required that you first sit down and talk about the challenge ahead.
