A road less travelled…
We understand that choosing to work in the special needs sector can feel like taking the “road less travelled”, but we also know that the majority who take that road are “all better for it”.
We recognise that the requirements of special needs schools are different to the mainstream and their particular requirements are frequently not actively listened to when working with external partners.
We have listened carefully to schools, leadership teams, teachers and school support staff and we have coupled this insight with our in-house expertise focused around our Head of Educational Strategy Jonathan Newport to create a new bespoke consultancy service; Special Needs Consultancy.
Jonathan began his career teaching in a mainstream school before moving to Barnardos where he worked for sixteen years and was the Primary Head Teacher, Deputy Principal and Head of Education at Barnardos' largest special school, which catered for children statemented with SEBD and complex needs. Jonathan is widely recognised for his innovative and progressive work on behaviour strategies.
We offer a consultancy service which is tailored to suit individual education settings and we would be more than happy to have an initial telephone conversation or ideally visit a school.
We are fortunate to represent a varied network of qualified education professionals, who are available both on an interim or a permanent basis.
Depending upon the needs of the school we offer individual advice sessions or we are happy to work in partnership with you to provide:
- A tailored approach to Special Needs Consultancy covering both permanent and interim staffing solutions
- CPD coursesIn-house expertise
- A valued and dedicated network of support staff, teachers and leadership members
- The in-house skills, expertise and knowledge to find the right fit for your pupils need
We have built solid relationships with many SEND settings nationwide and we believe that this has given us so much insight and understanding to enable us to find the right school and pupils for the right teacher or support staff.
