PROGRESS is a diagnostic tool and process for finding out how staff, students and parents experience an organisation's learning environment and how they think it can become even better.
There are five stages to PROGRESS:
1. Familiarise and identify
We use the PROGRESS Diagnostic to find out how the quality of people’s experience impacts on teaching and learning2. Understand and interpret
We design a tailored follow-on survey to deepen our understanding of what is happening in the school3. Create and develop
We work with staff and students to generate creative ideas for making the learning environment even better, and to shape these ideas into coherent strategies that will have buy-in from across the school community.4. Implement and integrate
We work out how the strategy can be implemented successfully and grow stronger through time.5. Review and reappraise
We monitor implementation of the strategy and introduce refinements to enhance impact
About the roleUse your skill and influence to make a big difference. Join a group of committed people setting up a new charity to ensure public service organisations focus on people rather than metrics.
We are looking for people with skills in fundraising, marketing, sales, communication and network building to help us build an organisation that can bring about change across public services.
We want to create a powerful and cohesive board that can provide the executive team with challenge and support while helping to shape an effective strategy for achieving our goals.
The PROGRESS process works by collecting data on organisational culture from stakeholders and using this data to tap the intelligence and creativity of those who work in an organisation or with it.
Our experience shows that The PROGRESS W@Y enables organisations to keep their eye on the human beings whose interests they are there to serve and resist the pressures caused by a focus on particular sorts of quantitative targets.
We also think there is a prospective international dimension to this work: there is interest in using PROGRESS from schools in Finland, Romania, Portugal and Australia.
We're working on a plan for the organisation now and will have our first get-together in early January. We will then work out how each of us can contribute to making PROGRESS fly.
Please come and join us! We look forward to hearing from you.
You can start to glimpse the possibilities that PROGRESS offers by rummaging around the www.progress-hse.org website and trying out the surveys there.
We have put up a few questions as an online survey.
We will use the responses we receive from you and others to shape plan that he will then circulate for further comment. We hope taking part in this process will strengthen your interest in the charity, help us understand how you can best contribute, and lead to the outline of a powerful strategy for ensuring the success of the organisation.
Feel free to talk with James Park at any time (on 0771 201 3172) about how PROGRESS works and how he envisages the charity might achieve its goals.
