Speaking

I enjoy public speaking, and have loads of experience running training courses for teachers.

Topics I've presented on include:

  • Curriculum change in secondary schools

  • How to stretch more able students

  • Encouraging and supporting more students to get into university

  • Applying to Oxbridge (for students or sixth form staff)

  • How to be successful Head of Department

  • Teaching and assessing GCSE English specifications

  • Revision sessions for students on GCSE English

  • Handling staff disciplinaries 

Here's some of the feedback I've had on my courses:
