As an accredited facilitator

I have worked collaboratively with school leaders, in planning professional learning and development (PLD) and have facilitated PLD at individual teacher, middle leader, whole staff and cross-school levels.

My experience includes

Beginning teacher and mentor facilitation - leading the team delivering PLD to PCTs and mentors in English medium schools (years 1-13) across the country and supporting a cluster of Māori medium PCTs and mentors.
Literacy Facilitation –working with school leaders and teachers in New Zealand primary, and secondary schools and administrators, principals and teachers internationally, in developing effective reading and writing programmes.
Coaching and Mentoring – supporting middle leaders to develop their coaching skills as they lead PLD.
School leadership – supporting principals in establishing, and maintaining, in- school professional learning groups and a culture of inquiry. Assisting principals in reviewing appraisal systems in light of the Practising Teacher Criteria.
