Working in partnership with school leaders, our tailored service delivers two distinct benefits:
Our team of advisers work with you to empower professionals, unlocking and renewing talent across your school. From reliable recruitment initiatives to top-up training for teachers, our experts have a deep understanding of how schools operate and are as friendly as they are flexible in approach. We are as adept at advising on the latest governance process and protocols, as we are supporting key staff members at work after illness.
In fact, we hope you’ll come to regard us as part of your in-house team.
We are driven by ensuring every child receives the best education possible. That begins with empowering professionals – formed from a genuine collaboration between schools and our people-focused experts.
Giving school leaders the confidence that every person is being developed to the best of their ability and every process and procedure has been put in place to support optimal learning.
Expertly tailored to your school’s needs
The thinking behind
The thinking behind Empowering Professional
School leaders are at their most effective when they have confidence in the fact that every person is performing to their best ability. We get it. That’s why we’re passionate about working with schools to support the whole school team.
We’re passionate about supporting schools
In our experience, learning is at its most effective when there is access to the broadest variety of experiences within a school environment. That’s why we’re passionate about working with schools to improve their access to learning services.
“I get much satisfaction knowing the resources we provide to schools help teachers champion the curriculum and enhance children’s learning. Learning Resource Service is the extended service to the classroom. We use our expertise to compile bespoke boxes containing a treasure trove of resource items. I take pride in our ever-growing resource bank covering a vast array of topics.”
“I love discovering new ways to support our governor volunteers and team of professional clerks. I promote high quality governance that effectively supports and challenges school leadership and ensuring that governing bodies are meeting their statutory duties, Ofsted expectations and fulfilling their key strategic functions. Seeing the positive impact that Governance has on pupils, staff and the local community is extremely rewarding.”
“Creative, logical, kind: my teacher said it, so it must be true. Schools shape lives and open up opportunities. My passion has always been about equality in learning and development. Identifying those who need more or different help. Children are not numbers, but I want to help make sure that every child counts.”
“Working in Emergency Planning brings a new challenge to overcome every day, or a new incident to respond to. I’m passionate about supporting schools in developing their understanding of and resilience to incidents and emergencies. My team and I have plenty of experience and ideas to help schools plan effectively to minimise disruption.”
“I feel extremely proud to be working with a group of seasoned health and safety professionals who have over 20 years’ experience, making work and teaching environments safer for staff and others. To be able to support, educate and empower colleagues to improve their own workplace, address problems and prevent serious harm or legal implications is very rewarding.”
“I believe children must be at the heart of everything services do – no question, no compromises. This principle has been with me from my early days directly supporting disaffected youth in the community and then working with pupils at risk of exclusion in schools. Listening to what families have to say, and involving them every step of the way, is key to our shared success.”
“I’ve been described as technically creative, and I take pride in making analysis visually engaging. I’m also passionate about using technology to free up staff to focus on front-line services. While we analyse data on thousands of children, it’s most satisfying when we hear our analysis has helped an individual to make great progress.”
Helpful ideas and insights designed to help you make the most of your services
Every school has honest, heartfelt intentions when it comes to attracting new pupils – however very few sit back and acknowledge the headache they cause parents. The decision for a parent or guardian on where to enrol their child is rarely based on location alone – expectations are much more diverse.
Now Wandsworth has its own glittering new global superstar neighbour moving in next door to a number of our Battersea schools.
To ensure a safe working and learning environment in schools and comply with legal obligations, ongoing health and safety training is essential.
