  • Securing effective Middle Management
  • Overcoming resistance to change

Tailored to the specific needs of your school, or group of schools, whether primary, secondary, independent or special, at a time and place to suit you.

Whether based in your school or off-site, my consultancy will develop relationships within your team, build your confidence, support collegiality and increase rigour.

Applications from clusters of schools, federations and trusts are welcome. In such cases my aim is to develop relationships, collaboration and networking within the cluster.


Over the course of two days Edward worked with the three senior teams to develop colleagues' understanding of and skills in responding to challenging, underperforming colleagues. The training met fully the programme's objective offering useful theoretical models to underpin concrete strategies and memorable tips and techniques. Delivery was engaging, well-pitched and responsive to delegates whose confidence Edward quickly won. Feedback from individuals was overwhelmingly positive and many commented within days how they were incorporating Edward's training into their repertoire of skills as senior leaders. Having all senior leaders across the partnership work with Edward has ensured consistency of approach and has had the additional invaluable gain of building genuine working relationships across schools
