Educational Coach & Consultant
Hi, I'm Mal.
I believe passionately that in the right culture; students, teachers and schools thrive.
My almost 20 years’ experience in education as a teacher, middle & senior leader then Senior Assistant Principal across a multi-academy trust, mean I've seen it all. I‘m in a unique position of understanding the strengths of teachers, the pressures they are put under and the struggles between wanting to stay or leave the profession. I also understand the burdens senior leaders face when trying to marry school improvement needs, with national priorities whilst dealing with a funding crisis.
I set up MalCPD Education Consultancy & Coaching to share what I’ve learnt to support others along their education journey. I know and have seen how all teachers can develop and improve their practice with the right training, mentoring and coaching. Teaching & Learning works best when the individual skills gaps of the staff are identified and enhanced through a coherent cycle of differentiated CPD. I truly believe, if the leaders of a school are skilled, confident and work together as a team, this will enable them to ensure all teachers are more effective, which will ultimately have an impact on student progress.
Coaching creates an energising culture where teachers re-ignite or sky-rocket their enthusiasm for teaching, excellence and collaboration. I've introduced coaching cultures into very challenging schools with dramatic effects on morale, teacher development and students. I've supported middle and senior leaders to embed the practice so that it self-sustains.
So, if you are looking to transform the culture of your school, to create more effective and high-quality teachers and leaders by revolutionising your professional development provision then, get in touch.
