Building on global research into highly effective schools, we have developed the ground-breaking Co-operative Schools Improvement Programme to support schools to improve, develop and innovate from their unique starting points. The programme works across the whole school, from leadership through to students and parents, looking at the learning environment and curriculum, designing a supportive and flexible improvement strategy which is uniquely tailored to each school's particular situation and requirements.

Not only for schools seeking to move from being judged as ‘Requiring Improvement’ to ‘Good’, it also supports those judged ‘Good’ in moving towards ‘Outstanding’, as well as stretching those that are already considered ‘Outstanding’.

"The Co-operative Challenge" has been developed through a strong partnership between the Co‑operative College and Edison Learning, bringing together leading expertise in co-operative education and school improvement support.
