Bespoke Training & Consultancy
Mark and Andy have worked with hundreds of schools nationwide over recent years to help them to improve the quality of teaching and learning. We focus on delivering training and consultancy that meets and exceeds the needs of schools.
Sometimes this involves developing bespoke action research projects for schools to experiment with new teaching strategies and assess their impact. This is an area we are passionate about. We believe the best teachers are those who are still learners.
Our experience in schools reinforces the importance of leadership at all levels in absolute focus on the development of high quality teaching and learning. We love ‘From Good to Great’ author Jim Collins’ quote “The great organisations made as much use of “stop doing” lists as “to do” lists. They displayed a remarkable discipline to unplug all sorts of extraneous junk.” Our leadership training draws upon the lessons learnt from our extensive work helping hundreds of teachers to improve their own practise.
Without clarity at all levels of what makes teaching and learning outstanding, not just in Ofsted terms but what the international research says, a school will struggle to maintain improvement. Fundamental to achieving clarity is creating time to go to the ‘micro’ level in schools. Are you seeking to develop the coaching capacity in your school? Want to develop your ‘black belt’ teachers so they have the knowledge, attitudes, and skills to help others to develop their practise? We offer a lesson observation and coaching training programme to provide your school with the coaches to help colleagues develop the quality of their teaching and learning.
