Compassion, empathy, trust
I started teaching in 1998 and became a Head of English in 200. I then gained a promotion to Assistant Headteacher in 2010 and worked in two schools where I was responsible for teaching and learning and the School Direct teacher training course. I followed this in 2016 by being appointed to a position as a Deputy Headteacher responsible for pupil progress and outcomes. During my time as a school leader I learned about coaching and focused on developing my coaching skills when working with middle leaders and supporting staff development. I supported the development of numerous members of staff through coaching, many into leadership positions. In 2019 I decided I could help more women in leadership roles if I was a coach so I studied for my Level 3 Diploma in Coaching and set up Transform Education Coaching. I am passionate about improving wellbeing in schools and recently qualified as a First Aid for Mental Health trainer.
The We Lead Well Podcast
Where wellbeing matters
The wellbeing of staff in schools has never been more important. With almost a third of new staff leaving the profession after just five years and 26% of teachers saying they are thinking of leaving in the next 12 months (National Foundation for Educational Research), we are facing a teacher retention crisis. The We Lead Well Podcast has been created in response to this crisis, to encourage and support schools to create places where people love to work. We support leaders to enhance the wellbeing of all staff in schools. Each week, leading educationalists share their experience, views and tips on how other school leaders can promote wellbeing in their organisations for the benefit of all staff.
“Coaching done well may be the most effective intervention designed for human performance.”
“Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximise their own performance. It's helping them learn rather than teaching them.”
