If you find some of the ideas expressed in this blog or my books useful, it could be that your school or organisation could benefit from the services of teacherhead-consulting at some point in the future, working with the WalkThrus materials as featured on walkthrus.co.uk.
1. Teaching and Learning. Extended Professional Development Programme.
Delivering bespoke long-term training programmes over several days/months with audits of current practice and a report with recommendations. This includes working with individuals and teams for a day or with multiple visits over the space of several months, all supported by Teaching Walkthrus. Walkthrus subscriptions would be required. This might include implementing an excellent research-informed CPD programme including use of WalkThrus for instructional coaching. This is my preferred way of working with schools so if you’d like to work with me on an extended programme I’d love to hear from you.
2. CPD Sessions: Evidence-informed teaching with Walkthrus
Here is a sample one-day programme – but I can tailor this to focus on any combination of Walkthrus or Rosenshine’s Principles in Action. I’d want to know how the sessions fit within a wider programme so that I can reference this in the delivery and reinforce the need for sustained cycles of practice and reflection.
I can also deliver remote sessions for parts of a day or twilights on a bespoke basis, always featuring Walkthrus. I’m not available to deliver short sessions in person unless you’re happy to treat it as a whole day.
3. Curriculum Planning and Assessment
How to balance breadth and depth at whole-school level; subject reviews (I know detail in most curriculum areas). Authentic Assessment: Making assessment meaningful for you, your students and parents at KS3 and beyond. This would not require Walkthrus subscription as a pre-requisite.
I’m regularly invited to talk at conferences for teachers, groups of leaders or MATs. I’m open to enquiries according to the dates set out below. I’m always keen to share ideas about curriculum and to share ideas from WalkThrus and will always prioritise organisations where I can support their engagement with the Walkthrus materials and the CPD philosophy we’re trying to promote.
If you want access to excellent PD resources with slides and videos, please take a look at the WalkThrus website. A one-off visit will pass but the materials last for ever!
