Three interview candidates ask their potential employer questions about the job for which they have applied. While the questions are reasonable, the way in which they are asked is not always appropriate and would therefore damage the chances of succeeding in the application. Questions range from training and development opportunities, the size of the team, pay and holiday entitlement.
Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) are increasingly being used, in England and beyond, to feed into the growing interest of ‘Best Practice’, ‘Building Evidence Into Education’, ‘What Works’ and ‘Knowledge Transfer’. RCTs are but one approach that can be used to help assess the efficacy and effectiveness of an intervention.
But before you get involved in any RCT in Education, here is a collection of questions you should be asking. These resources are partially derived from Earl-Slater’s excellent book and will save you time and money. The resources are suitable for all staff at any type of school, school governors, parents, government, local authority, free school, and academy sponsors.
