We are a collective of individuals who, when working for the Achievement for All delivery team, have participated in (and contributed to) programmes and improvement work across nearly 5,000 education settings during the course of a decade.
We are keen that our collective knowledge and wisdom is not lost, and we continue to stand for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people in the education system, across all phases.
We have complementary and supplementary specialisms, geographic profiles and individual offers. Above all, we seek to grow coaching and leadership capacity in a setting.
Please get in touch if you would like to be contacted by one of our coaching and leadership development practitioners to support your learning journey.
Disclaimer: We recommend each other’s services, but we cannot endorse, nor be held accountable for, quality of delivery or performance. Any work that is commissioned is with individuals and not the collective. We are not liable for the performance of colleagues. We collectively promote our skills and expertise as a collective of like-minded school improvement partners.
