Our training supports schools to develop a healthy school culture and harness the power of social and ecological leadership. Join us and be visionaries in education.
Our transformational CPD helps you to develop a leadership culture across the school as well as augmenting the wellbeing of both students and staff. Our training modules enhance teachers’ pedagogy in the classroom, provide practical wellbeing training and allow teachers to develop deeper, more supportive relationships with their students.
Outstanding schools rely on outstanding teachers, and great teachers are more than just subject specialists; they build genuine relationships with their students, and nurture them in ways far beyond the scope of the curriculum.
It is great teachers, and the support they provide to students, that brings learning to life and ensures students find their feet in the world. Great teachers support students’ wellbeing, whilst nurturing their individuality and diversity.
Our programmes support teacher retention by increasing job satisfaction and empowering teachers to lead. 40% of teachers plan to leave the profession in the next 5 years. We combat this retention crisis and support valuable teachers to remain in schools. Investing in your school by investing in your staff.
We train teachers to become the elders young people need to find their way in the world. By learning specific, tangible skills in mentorship, coaching, communication, and wellbeing support, teachers become equipped to have better relationships with students. In turn they have greater job satisfaction and are better able to support their own wellbeing. As more teachers go through The Visionaries Teacher Training each year, the support mechanisms in place for students become more robust and embedded in the school culture. The wellbeing of staff and students becomes a central thread to the success of the school. Our Teacher Training is delivered by facilitators who have long term experience (10+ years) in leadership and personal development coaching in education. Our Teacher Training is bespoke to each school, in order to respond to the strengths and needs within existing expertise. Schools can purchase one-off workshops on specific themes, or create bespoke training packages.
