“It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and we were always singing your praises based on the delivery, communication and monitoring you always provided. The learners and schools benefited hugely from having you as part of our DANCOP offering.” Ellie Rowley, DANCOP collaborative outreach programme, University of Derby

In our experience people who work in education care passionately about what they do. They tend to be exceptionally hard working and are motivated not by money but by making a difference for the people they work with. We share that passion and bring many years of experience both working within and for the education sector.

We’ve worked with children, school support staff, teachers, head teachers and lecturers. We work with nurseries, schools, colleges, universities, MATs, teaching school alliances and alternative education providers.

We have worked with new Headteachers, building their confidence. We have coached them and their teams to prepare for Ofsted inspections, and developed their leadership skills. We have trained school staff on improving school performance, time management, managing challenging people and conversations, confidence building, communication and improving relationships with parents.

For several years Lisa coached for national charity 21st Century Legacy which provides top rated Be the Best You Can Be! programme for schools. She has worked with hundreds of educators across the UK and spoken at Head teacher and SENCO conferences.

We have worked with Fusion Teaching School Alliance, Locality G Cluster of Schools in Sheffield, Sheffield Teaching School Alliance, Rose Learning Multi Academy Trust, Meadowhead School Academy Trust and several individual schools. In 2018 and 2019 we ran our ground-breaking Resilience Programme, a coaching and training programme for teenagers in association with DANCOP at the University of Derby - this programme was widely considered to be one of the best programmes DANCOP offered. We have worked with female academics at the University of Sheffield and coached leaders at the University of York.
