Abstract

Glasgow City Council commissioned the delivery of the Exploring Pedagogy in Primary 1 (EPP1) professional development programme (PDP) to continue its commitment to raising children's educational attainment in schools as part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge Initiative. The EPP1 project aimed to improve learning experiences through a targeted professional development programme exploring pedagogical approaches and theories to inform practice in the early years. The project ran from June 2017 to June 2018 and involved a total of 18 teachers and practitioners from across five schools in Glasgow City Council. During this time, the teachers participated in an 8-week PDP designed, delivered and evaluated by the University of Strathclyde. The evaluation strand of the project evaluated the effectiveness of the EPP1 programme by examining its impact on children's learning experiences and teachers' thinking and practice, through a series of questionnaires, classroom observations and group discussions.
