If you find some of the ideas expressed in this blog useful, it could be that your school or organisation could benefit from the services of @teacherhead-consulting. Please contact me to discuss how we could work together. I am based in London but I’d happily travel to work anywhere in the UK or around the world.
Below is a brief summary of some of the areas I might be able to support you with. You can also see a sample of the work I’ve already being doing on this blog. I can provide testimonials from previous clients on request.
