The Vertical Tutoring System
This systems thinking site is for secondary school practitioners, parents, students, and researchers interested in transformative change. It is for the growing number of people concerned that schools have lost their way and have become detrimental to wellbeing and learning in the C21.
This site is about school organisational change and the development of a values-led learning culture. It is for people who feel that the current same-age management paradigm separates participants, limits learning, and (in the words of Ken Wilber) "yearn to bring more consciousness to the way we run organisations but wonder if it is possible and how to do it".
The intention is to provide an insight into VT as a viable alternative and offer an opportunity to learn more for those interested in whole school improvement.
NB. The Vertical Tutoring System (VT) does not ask schools to create multi-age classrooms. VT works by repopulating tutor groups or homeroom groups for about 20 minutes each day. By changing organisational relationships, the school's structure adapts to people rather than people to structure i.e . from a one-size-fits-all system to one more adaptive to individual needs and learning.
