This report summarises the findings of research into the implementation of collaborative research and development (R&D) within teaching school alliances (TSAs). The five alliances that are the focus of this study all undertook collaborative R&D projects over a two year period (2012-2014) linked to one of two themes: 'what makes great pedagogy?' (theme 1) or 'what makes great professional development that leads to consistently great pedagogy?’ (theme 2). This work was part of a wider national project involving 66 alliances in total: the alliances received funding as well as support and facilitation from externally commissioned experts. The five alliances in this study were selected to offer a reasonable spread in terms of focus, approach and geography.
