But I already do a lot of staff development. What is the SKEIN service going to tell me I don’t already know?

SKEIN can help even the best colleges to better focus their energies and money on professional development processes, systems and activities which deliver actual benefit for students. Colleges, that are in general enthusiastic, organised supporters of their staff development, rarely evaluate (or know how to evaluate) the impact of the PD they provide or pay for.

Will the outcomes of your work with us remain confidential to us?

Each SKEIN college receives its own report which is fully confidential to them. It’s up to each college to decide whether and how they want to share the findings internally or otherwise. E.g. some college leaders we’ve worked with chose to share excerpts from their report or report summaries with their staff whilst others decided to just use them to inform their organisation’s strategic development.
