Assessment of the WCDL programme is a fundamental goal of the project designed and implemented by Society and Education, which has full participation of its team of experts.
«The first idea to transmit to new directors it is that integral education works. You can change kids’ lives. That is my experience. I have seen many people change»Director of a public school. Community of Madrid
Bearing in mind that the programme is in its stages of initial development, the intention of assessment is not so much to approve its effectiveness, but to explore how it can work in practice. Accordingly, premeditation of the assessment is much more open, and is based on a qualitative focus on processes and seeks to find answers, as we offer here, to some of the following questions:
«Society and Education, through its Educational Observation and Asessment Department (OyE), has the necessary experience and technical staff to choose the identification strategy most appropriate to assessing this leadership programme and to verify, by questionnaires, discussion groups, observations and visits to pilot schools, whether the intended goals are achieved»Mercedes de Esteban. Director of the Instituto de Estudios Educativos y Sociales. European Foundation Society and Education.
