talking in audienceWith more than 30 years of experience both in the educational and commercial sectors, I can provide consultancy options in a range of areas including:

  • Whole School Staff Behaviour Management Programme

Starting with a fully comprehensive audit of current practices, a bespoke programme will be developed to meet the needs of behaviour for learning within schools and academies.

This programme will fully consider the implications of the SEN code of Practice change from BESD to Social, Emotional and Mental Health. We will also prepare schools for the provision of Personal Development Behaviour and Welfare which will be the criteria used by Ofsted from September 2015.

  • How to set up a successful alternative classroom provision

Some students may provide a learning environment outside of the main classroom. Setting up a successful alternative learning provision should be in the planning of all inclusive schools. The design of this provision will be based on the experience of running Centre Academy school programmes within the USA and UK for over 15 years.

  • Developing inclusive practices in international schools

Inclusion is a process not a policy.  However, for successful inclusion to take place a range of steps need to be developed which involve the creation of a bespoke philosophy for each school and thereafter planning and training of all teaching and support staff.

This programme is designed to take each step of the journey from policy through to successful inclusive practice.
