Analysis of the equality and diversity fund
Analysis of teachers who participated in the projects were carried out as part of end of year surveys to provide insight into how well they felt participation helped them to increase their confidence, develop their leadership style and achieve promotions.
We have published the analysis of responses to the surveys for the 2015 to 2016, 2016 to 2017 and 2017 to 2018 programmes. Results of the end of year survey for the 2018 to 2019 programme will be published shortly.
