The one-year intensive Foundation Programme is the first step for schools wanting to become an HPL school. It develops a group of approximately 20 really competent HPL teachers to understand how to teach using the HPL framework and serves as a preparation for subsequent whole school adoption of the HPL philosophy and framework.
The Foundation programme is for UK schools and is delivered through taught time, supported online materials and individual assessment. It combines knowledge and skills with practice and reflection as well as lesson study and peer triad observations. There is frequent contact with an HPL Associate who knows and understands your school and context.

Between teaching blocks an in-school steering group leads the implementation in classrooms following a schedule set out in advance. The programme combines knowledge and skills with practice and reflection as well as lesson study and peer triad observations. There is frequent contact with an HPL Associate who knows and understands your school and context.
The Foundation/iFoundation Programme can be combined with the Transformation/iTransformation Programme.
