Training

If you would like me to speak at a conference, lead some staff training, or discuss how to implement any of the ideas I’ve written about in your school, please email me or call me on 07966 355059.

For an example of some of the consultancy work I have done, read this blog post by Dan Brinton, Deputy Head at Belmont Community School in Durham.

I lead bespoke training and provide consultancy on a range of topics including improving teaching & learning, whole-school literacy, feedback, assessment & marking, and curriculum design. As a specialist English teacher, I also work regularly with English departments in a variety of capacities.

Some feedback from schools and teachers

Thank you for delivering a fantastic series of very thought-provoking and genuinely stimulating sessions. Feedback has been universally positive and it is undoubtedly the best teaching-focused INSET we have had here. The meetings afterwards produced a slew of excellent ideas inspired by what you said, and you have engaged staff in a manner that is really exciting for future teaching and the learning prospects for our students.

Sean Dunne, Deputy Head (Academic) Wycliffe College

It was a real ‘coup’ for us to have you and the staff were unanimous in their praise of you. It’s the best feedback I’ve ever had (both anecdotally and on formal feedback forms); staff described it as the best morning’s CPD they had ever had.

Gillian Fergusson, Depute Rector, Hutcheson’s Grammar School, Glasgow

Thank you for such a great CPD event at our school. The footprint you left behind in the staffroom talk is already changing practice.

Chris Sammons, Headteacher, St Katherine’s School, North Somerset

Very informative and useful. Lots of easy to use strategies – thoroughly beneficial.

Samantha Morris, The Priory, Shropshire

Great practical strategies wrapped up with relevant and rich examples. Liked the realistic approach and lack of emphasis on Ofsted.

Clare Thorpe, Langley Secondary School

Very valuable, helpful tips but also useful theory. Engaging and dynamic.

Jane Thompson, Abbey College, Manchester

Reignited my passion for teaching!

Anna Bartlett, St Joseph’s RC High School, Newport

Inspirational!

Dee Dee Bookless, John Cabot Academy, Bristol
