The HEAD Foundation is proud to be in partnership with University of Glasgow and Vietnam National University (VNU) on the critical issue of school improvement in Vietnam.

Managing Director David Clegg recently visited with key members of the project in Hanoi, which included Rector Le Kim Long from VNU’s University of Education and high-level officials from the country’s Ministry of Education and Training.

Here in the picture, as well, is Professor Christopher Chapman, Director of the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change at the University of Glasgow, and Professor Clive Dimmock, Professor of Professional Learning and Leadership at the Robert Owen Centre and esteemed Fellow of The HEAD Foundation.

University of Glasgow, in partnership with the British Council and The HEAD Foundation, has begun a study into school effectiveness by express invitation of the Vietnamese government. The results of the study will lead to training and other intervention strategies to aid in capacity building and the sustainability of models for high performance contextualised for Vietnam under its its renovation plan.
