Teaching and Learning
Teaching and Learning are an innovative, expert team who have all served and still do serve, in the classroom. As such, we are uniquely placed to provide you with training and /or support programmes, teaching, coaching, mentoring and resources for teachers and/or parents and learners.
Our team consists of a wide range of Advisers who have relevant and recent experience of Senior Leadership, subject leadership and classroom practice within a range of local schools. Many of our Advisers are currently serving experts and others have only recently stepped away from full time SLT roles. This enables us to truly understand the issues, stresses and strains of working at the chalk face.
It is often a good idea to ask support professional- do you still teach? In our case, the answer will always be yes! Have you recently worked in a school facing challenging circumstances? – Again- a big yes from all of us in our team! Are your ideas tried and tested with real children and real teachers? Again, yes of course! Do you understand what it is like to go through an Ofsted inspection? Indeed- we all undergo Ofsted inspections as we are all involved in teaching and learning!
We understand the New National Curriculum because we are busy delivering it. We understand the need to find impactful ways to accelerate learning outcomes because we ourselves have children to teach and targets to meet. Our resources deliver the right kind of support because we have used them with children and in classrooms.
We offer a wide range of in school support- often to Headteachers, often to Senior and Middle Leaders and often to teachers and paraprofessionals. Our customer focus means that we listen to what you want – we offer the challenge and support you request. Our proactive, problem solving experience enables us to alert you of patterns that are emerging and trends- offering a range of practical and innovative solutions.

In addition, we run a series of engaging and informative CPD sessions at a range of venues across the Midlands. Feel free to ask us when you attend our courses- do you still teach? And the answer will of course be yes. In addition, all of our courses are carefully prepared and resourced. Our Advisers are developed and updated frequently so that they have the latest t information, techniques and resources. Our courses are often oversubscribed and always very highly evaluated by delegates.
Our resources are always classroom trialled and have often been praised by schools, children, Governing Bodies and even HMI.
We range from Early Years to Year 13 and from phonics to Shakespeare. We are happy to audit, model, design, create, deliver, assess, moderate and teach.
In addition, we are prepared to travel to you, wherever you may be in the Midlands and whatever your context. Our schools include Grammar Schools, Academies, Short Stay Schools, LA maintained and everything in between.
All of our work is completely bespoke – we do not lift packages from off the shelve and expect it to serve the needs of all customers.
