That’s why I offer a range of support strategies to meet different needs. From high quality training workshops, to one to one individual mentoring and coaching support.
High Quality Workshop Delivery
My training sessions generate real discussion and debate, and give practitioners an opportunity to take valuable time out to think and reflect on their current practice, and discuss the real issues which they find problematic at times within their working lives.
Talking and sharing ideas supports practitioners to identify their own solutions with actions they genuinely want to take forward to ensure improvements in their practice.
With a background in the delivery of teacher training programmes and workforce development, she is recognised as an expert in the field of teacher development and improvement.
Workshop sessions can be facilitated in all areas of effective classroom practice, curriculum design and implementation. Workshop sessions are lively and designed to generate debate and discussion allowing practitioners to explore new ideas and evidence based research around best practice in facilitating deep learning which ensures learners learn more and remember more.
Ofsted Inspection Readiness
Understanding the new Education Inspection Framework (EIF – 2019)
What are the truths and myths about inspection? How do we break down the jargon of inspection to know what is expected of us? How can we prepare staff to do well, and to keep their cool at inspection and do their organisation justice? Teachers particularly can get very stressed by the pressure of observations during inspection, how can we help teachers to remain calm, do what they do best and perform well at inspection?
The new Education Inspection Framework has a very different focus and approach to that which we have been familiar. Practitioners will need to hone their knowledge and skills around effective curriculum design (intent) and delivery (implementation). The new framework has been underpinned by research underlying the key judgement areas in the EIF. This includes a review of international educational effectiveness, curriculum, teacher well-being and managing challenging behaviour and effective teaching.
So what is the research telling us about effective delivery of quality education?
Is it time to review your pedagogical knowledge to ensure the delivery of high quality learning experiences and to deliver a content rich curriculum?
