A Framework for Success

We know that to achieve powerful teaching that changes lives, teachers need to have strong subject knowledge, the best evidence-based subject pedagogies, rigorous assessment and effective planning, all working together.

That’s why we developed the AC+ 5-Step Improvement Process, based on over a decade’s experience of transforming subject results in one of the most respected MATs. An expert consultant will guide you through every step so that you can be confident in success. This is backed by all the integrated teaching, planning and assessment resources to make real change achievable.

We will work directly with your teachers and work with your leadership to create an improvement plan bespoke to your school. Our team of highly skilled educational consultants will introduce, embed and sustain evidence-based teaching strategies that are independently shown to lead to stronger student outcomes, more confident teachers and a consistency of teaching and learning across all year groups.

Here’s how it works…

AC+ 5-Step Improvement Process

Delivering immediate science improvements and sustained academic growth




Following a detailed review, a structured diagnostic call with our science expert helps your science lead to quickly identify areas of focus that will lead to the greatest impact, and to build an improvement plan to achieve these goals consistently with all teachers.​



Inspiring face-to-face induction training for your science lead and key teachers – and cutting-edge online training on-demand for all – gets everyone engaged and immediately improves teacher confidence.



Access to a full suite of curriculum-integrated subject-specific CPD, planning, teaching and assessment resources supports consistency from day one and frees up teacher time. Designed so that, where necessary, they can be picked up and used straightaway by any teacher, our resources will strengthen the quality of teaching and provide consistency across your science department. Precise diagnostic data and planning guidance supports teachers to repurpose this time into higher value activities.

YEARS 1 - 3:



Once you have the foundations in place, we build on the immediate impact with an exciting journey together to achieve sustainably great science teaching in your school.

Induction and CPD for new joiners help ensure your staff stay fully supported.

Regular updates to teaching resources and CPD keep your science provision fresh, evidence-informed and up to date.

New and unseen benchmarked assessments give you continued confidence that you are on track, and help you identify when you need to refresh subject teaching.

You continue to belong to a network of like-minded schools and stay up to date with new research and evidence.
