iAbacus® is based on a proven process designed by John Pearce during 40 years as a School Improvement Adviser. Staff value it – and trust it.

 Help staff think strategically

iAbacus® empowers staff, building their capacity to plan strategic actions based on self-evaluation and the analysis of factors affecting performance.

iAbacus® stimulates collaboration, providing a framework for peer-to-peer discussion and coaching – vital in ‘self-improving’ schools.

  Strengthen appraisal procedures
