Abstract: Within the Welsh education system, ‘Schools as Learning Organisations’ (SLOs) remains a centrepiece of current education policy. This article considers some of the key evidence base(s) that connect to and underpin the SLO model in Wales. This is not a review of the literature but rather an overview of the main empirical evidence that reinforces the SLO approach in Wales. The article highlights that there is a supportive, empirical evidence base for each of the 7 dimensions of the Welsh SLO model. It concludes, however, that more practical guidance, particularly about implementation processes, are needed to assist schools in their journey towards becoming stronger learning organisations.
