I have worked with a range of clients, including primary and secondary management and subject teams to explore ways of developing curriculum and teaching and learning. Many of my projects have involved KS1,2 and 3 curriculum models that bring context based learning to the fore, while raising standards of literacy, oracy and cultural capital. I frequently work with international schools particularly on concept and inquiry based learning in the PYP and MYP programme if the International Baccalaureate. If you think I may be able to help your school, please send a query via the “contact me” page.
Conferences and Inset Days
Whether you need a key note presentation or full staff Inset day, I can create a bespoke package to meet your needs. Some previous work has included:-
- Dilemma Led Learning – getting children to think and to understand that difficult problems need creative solutions.
- Growth Mindset – More than a Buzzword! – How to shift assessment and teaching culture in your school so that mindsets become more than platitudes on posters.
- Memory and Matter – So how does memory work? And how do we utilise it to move students from simply preparing for tests, to remembering for the longer term?
- Triple A Learning – Autonomy, Articulacy and Activity – How do we engage children in deep and meaningful learning experiences that capitalise on what we know about the impact of independence, action and oracy in the classroom, so that children become invested in their learning?
The costs below are indicative and negotiable depending on your needs, the number of delegates and whether the work might be ongoing, so please take them as a guideline and contact me to discuss details.
