Working with Schools and Researchers
SCHOOLS: February 2023: working with schools in Llandaff, Wales; Liverpool and Sevenoaks.
TIME: The most effective way of learning begins with the school's leadership team and a 90-minute online session or 2 hours plus onsite.
SESSIONS: This introductory session is based on transformative learning and involves:
Discussing with schools how they currently operate their same-age system
Deconstructing existing policies and practices (assumptions)
Designing a bespoke VT school by learning about the systemic changes needed.
Dealing with the many challenges of implementation and change.
There can be as many or as few sessions as schools need, but the aim is to leave schools with a clear idea of what VT is and why it is a different organisational system. All materials needed including presentation material and an implementation plan is included.
Working with Parents, Students & Governors
It is always a delight when parents, school students and others contact this site for information. Often there are concerns about friendship groups, why change is necessary, how the system works, who is involved, and what happens.
All queries are answered by answerwd either by email or online discussion.
Leadership Teams, LAs, whole staff, parent intro to VT, students, governors etc.
Talks and seminars with interest groups, PTAs and others organisations.
A free service to schools that have changed to VT or want to, but feel they haven't got it quite right and want to improve their system.
Work with research groups and other services to develop synergy and share expertise.
