For the past three years members of Homerton College and of the University Faculty of Education have been engaged in a major project of educational development in Kazakhstan.

Research has multiple roles to play: It informs our negotiated programme of teacher professional development; it is applied in evaluating progress; and building research capacity is a central feature as we support the establishment of a Graduate School of Education at Nazarbayev University. Moreover the model of reflective practice embodied in our programme promotes a concept of teaching as research in the classroom.

This seminar presents an account of experiences and progress to date. It highlights continuities in Homerton’s and Cambridge University’s long-standing contributions to developing school education nationally and internationally. It reflects critically on schooling and teacher development in Kazakhstan in the 21st century context following 25 years of independence in an increasingly globalized economy. We consider especially the challenges of school leadership in the process of change and modernization.
