Personalised professional development designed for the particular needs of your school both now and in the future.
This can range from basic teacher training of unqualified teachers (e.g. a UK PGCE-related programme) to an advanced advisory service for school owners and senior management.
Succession Planning: Soft qualitative audit of current and future Managers
Mentoring Leaders: Identifying and supporting upcoming leaders in your school
HRM: the key (misunderstood) component in the successful international school
Staff Retention/Recruitment Strategies: Preparing for the coming International School Teacher Crisis
The Hybrid International School: targeting different cultural markets simultaneously
The Inspector Calls: Preparing for accreditation agency inspections
Understanding Organisational Culture: What your school is really made of
Culture Shock: Why new teachers arrive and why they move on
Motivation: What (de)motivates your teachers is not what you think
Power/Resistance: Identifying power regimes in your organisation
The Flipped Classroom: Techniques and Tests
The Continuing Power of Confucionism and How it Affects Your School at every level
SHORT INSET COURSES
1-3 day programmes aimed at motivating your staff and developing their understanding and knowledge of teaching, learning and management trends in international education, notably in Asia. Sample Lectures/Seminar Titles: ‘21st Century Teaching and Learning: Developing Imaginative Hybrid Minds’, ‘The High Performance International School’, ‘Leader or Manager? Your Choice, Your Style’, ‘Gender Issues In Schools'.
INDIVIDUALISED COACHING AND MENTORING SERVICE
Offered to the individual school owner and leader (undertaken primarily by Skype and email together with occasional site visits). This is a most cost-effective way for senior leaders to receive informed, critical and neutral guidance on organisational issues as and when they arise.
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
For a minimum contractual period of six months (2-5 days per month). Includes ongoing professional development of teachers in accordance with UK PGCE standards (e.g. formal teacher observations and feedback) plus senior and middle management guidance and consultancy service on any organisational/HRM issue or strategy.
SERVICES ANYWHERE IN ASIA
Below are some of the leading international and private schools that I am currently working with or have worked with in the recent past:
Please feel free to contact the Principals of any of these schools to receive their opinion as to the quality of my Professional Development and Management Consultancy services.
My fee rate is on par with and indeed generally lower than any similar consultancy service available in Asia.
The reason is that I am doing this consultancy for personal interest and enjoyment, not simply for money. Also, because I am based in Thailand my travel expenses are kept to a mininum.
My daily rate (plus expenses) is negotiable but largely depends on the number of days involvement and whether or not you require me for a short contract (e.g. 2 days INSET) or longer term ongoing professional development/management consultancy contract.
