Launched on 25 February 2015, Blueprint for a Self-Improving System is the Association of School and College Leaders inquiry into leadership of England’s education system and how heads and school leaders can take on a greater role in the next phase of development:
We want a system in which all children and young people achieve. We believe we can have a great education system that delivers quality and equality for all students. This will involve an act of imagination, courage and collective action. Our blueprint sets out a vision for our education system. At its heart is capacity building - leadership capacity, pedagogical capacity and the capacity for creativity and action.
