The article begins with a review of what is known internationally about system level reform. With these frameworks in mind, a critique is then made of recent educational change efforts in Wales. This is followed by a comprehensive description of a system reform strategy for Wales based around the four drivers of personalised learning, professionalised teaching, intelligent accountability and networks and collaboration, all of which are moulded to context by system leadership. It is this framework that holds promise for sustained progress in student achievement throughout the country.
