As an accredited facilitator

I have spent sixteen years developing PLD experiences, and in-school one-on-one support, across the schooling sector, mainly involved in, but not limited to, the HPE learning space.
I have been both a facilitator and creator of PLD packages that are structured from an Inquiry perspective that are responsive to teachers’ needs and that of their akonga, based on evidence and research.

My experience includes

Health Education, Physical Education and Home Economics Facilitation for Primary and Secondary, that enables teachers to develop, authentic programmes with a deeper understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum based on inquiry and underpinned by effective pedagogy and quality assessment.
Syndicate and Departmental reviews - mentoring HODs/HOFs and initiating structures for rigorous self-review processes.
Supporting schools to develop robust processes for the Consultation of their Health Education Programme (a two year requirement under the Education Act) that involves a culturally responsive whole school approach.
Other PLD experiences include NZC Facilitation and implementation - developing a school curriculum and Effective EOTC Management in schools.
