The partnership with the Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership (APLP), a pedagogical consultant and seven schools from across Wales, add an invaluable dimension to our research project. Their involvement ensures that our work remains closely aligned with the practical needs and realities of schools. It facilitates the translation of research findings into practice based reality.
