School Advisory In Warwickshire

 

Helping You Transform
Your School.

What I do

The consultancy services I offer are extremely varied and diverse, because every situation really is unique. I could work with you for a week, where I conduct a daily school review looking at areas that could be improved, and finding ways to implement these changes. Or I could be leading a review process that encompasses the whole year, where I visit your school weekly, building up an idea of the issues and looking at ways to address these in the long term. It all depends on your requirements, and I will tailor my service to meet your needs.

I work in all phases of education and have practical experience of working in primary education through to higher education. I can centre attention onto a specific department or provide strategical support to guide your organisation through transformational change.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Empowerment Coaching

It is important to emphasise, that underpinning this advisory work is coaching. I do not just simply do the work or tell you what to do, but I empower your educators, leaving your organisation better prepared to deal with situations in the future. As a result, I do not always work with schools who are failing to meet targets, I regularly work with outstanding schools are looking to refine specific areas.

Committing to improving, is an ongoing process that never stops and I can help generate innovative solutions to help your school grow.

 

 

I can draw upon this experience and collaborate with you to discover problems and generate practical, applicable solutions that will result in real important change.

Past Examples


 

  • I have worked with a good school, but with a struggling department. In this particular instance the girls were having difficulties achieving targets in science. So, I conducted ongoing research to identify why this was occurring and generated solutions to ameliorate this.
     
  • I have supported a science department which was new to delivering GCSE science. The objective was to build the whole department from the ground up. In this, I looked at leadership, developed schemes of learning and assessed the quality of teaching. I examined curriculum design, supported parents and children in the development of the new school and helped complete key deliverables. This was a lengthy project that assembled a whole department from afresh.
     
  • I have also worked with a school trust and assisted in the review process of a school once a term, building upon the feedback from governors. This acted as a self-inspection for the school, which took a proactive approach to improving key processes.
     
  • Another school that I collaborated with, required extensive leadership coaching. Rather than buy into a generic leadership course, I tailored a bespoke programme applicable to the school with coaching and mentoring processes for the middle leaders of the organisation.
     
  • I have worked for the National Strategy as a Science and generic school improvement Consultant as well as being lead Consultant for Assessment for Learning (AfL).
     
  • I am also a consultant for the STEM learning partnership, promoting subjects and careers, particularly in the area of science.
