Consulting with schools and other organisations
I work with schools and other organisations to deliver bespoke professional learning. My work has included delivering professional learning about trauma informed practice and other topics to schools, community organisations, local government and health settings.
My aim with delivering professional learning is for participants to experience a mix of theory and practical take-aways. I can work with schools and organisations as a one off, I can design a single hour or up to multiple days of professional learning. I am at times an educator, a guide, or a facilitator, because I know that what I bring will sometimes be brand new, sometimes a reminder, and sometimes a validation and opportunity to enhance existing practice.
My offerings are designed around the needs of the recipients. I love having the opportunity to explore the needs of a particular school or organisation, this might lead to a comprehensive wellbeing strategy, but sometimes we have to just jump in and see what emerges.
Opportunities for reflective practice around student wellbeing can be invaluable. Along with training-style delivery I offer small group work providing an opportunity for teams, leadership, or other groups to delve into their practice. Other ways of working with schools might include working as part of a multi-disciplinary team to look at what interventions could be provided as part of a multi-tiered system of support for an individual, or across a school, or working directly with families or students.
Below are a range of topic areas that I deliver professional learning on. Please get in contact for more information, a more comprehensive list of topics, or to discuss your school or organisation's needs.
