  • In-school training events are an ideal way for your staff to train together. These can be full days, half days, twilights or span a number of days with gap tasks in between.

    Training events can be designed for:
    Senior leadership teams: a great way to build and develop leadership capacity by training together - for example ‘strengthening strategic thinking’ or 'outward facing leadership'. Why not take advantage of being able to work together as a senior team on site (or an off site venue can be provided) on leadership issues. Tailor sessions to meet the needs of staff in your team.
    Assistant headteachers: a whole day course can be delivered for your assistant headteachers which is ideal for both new and experienced leaders. Alternatively, a programme can be designed to develop leadership capacity across the year.
    Middle leaders: select from a range of modules to design a programme that meets the needs of your middle leaders, for example developing lesson observation skills, action planning, dealing with challenging people, Ofsted, using emotional intelligence, etc or plan a programme of 1:1 sessions for colleagues to support them with action planning and keeping on track with plans.
    Teaching assistants: for example 'developing questioning' or 'increasing impact in the classroom'.
    Teachers and/or teaching assistants: for example raising attainment through harnessing ‘growth and fixed mindsets’ or increasing knowledge and awareness of how the quality of teaching is judged by Ofsted. You may be interested in developing co-coaching as a method of supporting the in-house development of teaching.

    Training can be designed for your school or for colleagues across a range of schools. Training can be delivered in house or, for an additional charge, a venue and refreshments can be booked for you off site. This may be particularly useful if the training is for colleagues across a range of schools.

    Fresh Solutions

    The advantage of using freelance consultancy is having a professional development programme designed to meet the needs of staff in your school. With Ofsted emphasising the effectiveness of performance management and its link to training and development opportunities (including support for career progression), a bespoke package can be an ideal way of providing effective CPD.

    Projects

    Do you need additional leadership capacity for a project? My freelance consultancy time can be purchased to add additional capacity on a temporary basis.

    External courses

    As well as providing in-house training we can arrange venues and catering for your event at an additional charge.

    Cluster support

    Why not consider training together, e.g. support for Assistant Headteachers across a cluster or family of schools.
