The rise of ‘experimental’ government
This week David Halpern, National Adviser on What Works makes the case for innovation to be embedded in our work and not confined to new initiatives or programmes in Civil Service Quarterly.
He calls for us all to evaluate and adapt our practice on a continual basis and shares how a more robust level of evaluation can become a transformational tool.
This week’s pioneer case study showcases Think Good, Feel Good – A Whole School Approach to Emotional Health & Wellbeing across Shropshire schools.
Our evidence programme call with our commissioning partners ESRC has now closed and our panel is at work considering the applications. Thank you for your interest, it is really inspiring to hear about so much great research in the UK. If you want to share your work or find out about what others are doing please do use our growing online forum.
Also a reminder that Lord O’Donnell is currently recruiting the Chair and Board of the Centre – closing date for applications for Chair is 2nd February and Trustees 16th February.
