Teaching as inquiry

Make your inquiry processes go beyond box ticking to make a real difference to teaching and learning.

Real inquiry into teaching and learning

While the inquiry process seems straight forward, real inquiry into teaching and learning involves real evaluative skills and thinking.

We support teachers and leaders to establish a robust inquiry process which:


  • is based on evidence
  • involves students
  • looks beyond the most obvious solutions
  • challenges assumptions and beliefs
  • can be linked to teacher appraisal in a meaningful way
  • makes a real difference to student outcomes
