The ‘Listening Ear’ series
The Listening Ear, as the name suggests is the umbrella name for my coaching and mentoring programme. It is non-directive and can support you in whatever role you play. It offers a safe space and the chance to do some blue-sky thinking.
Leadership support Being a leader can be a lonely job and I can offer not only an ear to listen but support to help you clarify a plan that will guide you through the maze that can so often overwhelm. Supporting leadership
Governance support As an experienced governor across all phases, I can offer support to your governing body. This can be as simple as a visit to view your procedures to more in-depth support identified from a basic review. I can also provide one-off training packages so do ask for the menu of support that is available Supporting governance
|100 Word Challenge This weekly writing challenge supports creative writing through blogging. It provides an opportunity to collaborate with schools across the globe which means the audience for your students’ writing extends from you as the teacher to the world. Supporting Creative Writing |
Early Career Teacher
Whether you are an NQT or in your second/third year of teaching or even considering joining this marvellous profession, I can help. There are lots of resources out there and navigating your way through them can be daunting. Support can be in preparing for an interview, practicing typical interview questions and answers, and setting up mock interview process.
