    music and drama

Annual national CU evaluations

Independent evaluation of the work of the CU has been undertaken by 'Leadership for Learning - The Cambridge Network', led by Professor John MacBeath of the University of Cambridge. The formative approach to evaluation has been integral to developments of the CU, most particularly in Professor MacBeath's contributions to the development of the CU's quality assurance processes and to the creation of a national Passport To Learning.
