VISIBLE LEARNINGPLUS CERTIFIED SCHOOL AWARD

Attaining this certification, which is the highest school award, demonstrates the deep commitment your school has to continued self-evaluation of the impact you have on student achievement.

Becoming a Visible Learningplus Certified School

To become a Visible Learningplus Certified School, your institution is required to submit a detailed application which describes the implementation process you have used to embed the five Visible Learning strands in your school.

The application needs to be supported by evidence of impact of current practice according to the five Visible Learning strands. Schools should only apply for the Certified School award if they believe they have developed the Visible Learning mindframes i.e. leaders, teachers and students as evaluators of their own impact, and if they have a range of evidence to support this. An assessment fee will be charged to become a Certified School. This is managed by your local Visible Learningplus delivery organisation. 

Applications will be assessed by your local Visible Learningplus delivery organisation and moderated by an international panel chaired by Professor John Hattie.

Schools that have met the Visible Learningplus Certified School standards will receive:

  1. Visible Learningplus Certified School Status
  2. Visible Learningplus certified School kitemark for use on the school website and letterhead.
