New EEF podcast: ‘Exit Interview’ with Sir Kevan Collins – is teaching becoming more evidence informed?
“I don’t think the evidence should tell you what to do. I think it should guide and support your thinking.”
So says Sir Kevan Collins, soon to step down as chief executive of the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), in this 30-minute interview with Evidence Based Education’s Jamie Scott for the latest episode of our Trialled and Tested podcast.
Sir Kevan discusses his eight years in the role, the appetite for such research among teachers and policy makers, what he sees as the EEF’s successes and challenges in that time – and identifies the top five changes he’d make as education secretary.
‘Trialled and Tested’ is produced in partnership with Evidence Based Education. Previous episodes are available to listen to here.
