For a limited period I am offering a free one-hour fundraising consultation to help you access much-needed funds for your school. To book your consultation email me at the address below.

WHAT I BELIEVE IN
My vision is for a brighter future for children and young people in our schools, colleges and universities. I'm also committed to helping adults develop professionally and creatively throughout their careers. If you share this vision I'd like to work with you.

WHAT I DO
I'm an award-winning educational consultant, best-selling author and teacher who has worked at the most senior level in the UK. I have 25 years' experience of working in education and continue to support hundreds of schools, thousands of teachers and many individual students around the world every year.

My diverse services include the following:
  • I carry out training and workshops with teachers, school leaders and other education professionals (my areas of specialism include effective teaching & learning, creativity across the curriculum, fundraising for schools and marketing & public relations for schools).
  • I provide one-to-one consultancy to senior leaders, middle leaders and teachers on a range of key issues.
  • I write books and articles on teaching & learning and school leadership/management issues (20 books and over 300 articles to date).
  • I teach English to people of all ages and abilities in one-to-one lessons, especially those whose first language is not English, who are working or studying in the UK.
  • I provide dissertation and study support to students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

MY AWARDS
I have received several leading awards for my teaching, my work managing schools and my writing. I am one of only a handful of educational consultants whose work has been shortlisted on three separate occasions for the flagship British Educational Resources, the top UK award for education resources. I was a winner of this award in 2005 for my work on the Teachers' Pocketbooks, a series I co-founded and wrote six titles for. I was made a Fellow of the Millennium Association for my pioneering work on environmental education, and was subsequently awarded the Franco-British Council School Partnership Prize for a project that enabled young people to write a bilingual book about their home regions in Brittany and Yorkshire.

I've been in the news in the UK and Poland over the last few years due to the success of my book Poles in the UK: A Story of Friendship and Cooperation, and associated projects. The book was jointly written by the Polish writer Maria Helena Zukowska. You can find out more at www.polesintheuk.net, www.facebook.com/polesintheuk and in the BBC TV interview below. There are links to other TV, radio and newspaper articles and interviews about this project in the above website, and on the Facebook page.
