      • provides a central focus on outcomes, especially student achievement
      • Synthesises current research to build the framework below
      • realigns school practices, vision and principles
​​The IDEAS programme is based on current research into schools and the successful restructuring of schools. It works on aligning essential school functions such as strategic vision, teaching and learning, community expectations, work practices and professional learning.
