TLR 3 Research Opportunities in the Waltham Forest GREEN Teaching School Alliance

There is an opportunity for teaching staff in the WF GREEN TSA to apply for one of four possible TLR 3 posts. The aim is for the successful candidates to undertake classroom-based research on effective classroom practice. Successful candidates will be given CPD on classroom practice research and will be given an opportunity to share their findings with a wider audience. The classroom based practice can be the teacher’s own class(es), but a control group will be needed to analyse the impact of the practice. Joint applications are also welcome.

While there are four positions available, there are many possible areas of focus.  It is important to us that we hear your vision, ideas and thoughts on aspects of classroom practice that you would like to research. However, it is strongly recommended to consult the Teaching and Learning toolkit on the Education Endowment Foundation website.

A number of subjects have been identified as areas of interest, you may wish to include these in your resource draft proposal or they may be the focus of you research. The subjects identified are: more and most able students, SEN, Ethnic Groups, Middle attainers, Science, maths and English post 16.

It is expected that candidates will attend one meeting each term. These meetings will include training on how to complete research. This work will be evaluated in short report format to be shared across the teaching school alliance. Successful candidates be expected to present their research at a Teachmeet event at the end of the academic year, and should be open to visits from teachers across the TSA. 

Interested staff are invited to submit a written application on one side of A4 outlining their vision and one side of A4 setting out an action plan for the area they are most passionate about researching on.

Prior to making an application, you are encouraged to discuss your proposals with a member of your leadership team. Applications will be expected to include a short reference from the senior leader in your school who is a member of the Teaching School steering group.


Please submit applications to Mandy Madhani (

Closing Date: Monday 26th November 2018 - noon

Pay scale: TLR 3 (Please note there is no time remuneration for this post).

These positions are open to all WF GREEN TSA teaching staff.
