We invite you to two free online events, exploring how schools can take ideas from research and implement them effectively. A collaboration between the Centre for Applied Education Research, Bradford Birth-19, Beckfoot Trust and Bradford Research School,
in each of our case study sessions, we will have two concrete examples of implementation. Developers, academics and practitioners will outline how they ensured the idea was effectively implemented, what they have learnt and the challenges they have faced.

Case Study 1: With Henrietta McLachlan, Director of Elklan, and Donna Sagar, Assistant Head, Hollingwood Primary School. They will discuss the implementation of Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) - a 20-week programme designed to help young children
