Coaching the #WomenEd Way
Yasmin Ariff
General Blogs
by Yasmin Ariff   @AriffYasmin @CVPGROUP_ I wish I'd found coaching earlier in my teaching career. It has made me a better person on so many levels. But it came at a cost. Having invested £8000 of my own money into coaching training, it's fair to say, although it's been worth it, it also broke the bank balance. If only there was a government-f...
Leadership can be scary
Julie Hunter
By Julie Hunter     @MsHMFL I gave a talk at a #WomenEd conference in January 2022 and only came across my slides again recently. With the background of leaders suffering from accountability measures in England, now seemed like the perfect time for me to put my presentation into a blog.

By Briony Bowers @BrionyBowers Briony went to #WomenEd sessions at #rEDBerks2023 recently which led to her retweeting her 2021 blog. Sadly, progress since then has been minimal. In 2015 the New York Times published an analysis of the CEOs of S&P 1500 firms revealing the remarkable statistic that there were more men called John leading these big...

By Claire Harley @clairevh How do you find the time? Something you've probably said to yourself about three times already this week.

Elaine Walker

So when the communications team asked colleagues to blog a bit more, I decided I would seize the opportunity to delive...
Taking the first steps towards Leadership
Sara Moya
By Sarah Moya  @SarahMoya After nearly twenty years of working in education, I find it is difficult to pinpoint where and how my experiences as a female professional differ from my male counterparts when it comes to career progression. Indeed, the subjective nature of my experiences, coupled with the suspicion that to raise them in the workpla...
Part-Time TLRs Revisited
Lindsay Patience
By Lindsay Patience     @mumsyme Flexible Teacher Talent recently asked in a Twitter poll how part-time TLRs (Teaching and Learning Responsibility) worked. I was shocked to find again that a large proportion of teachers are not being paid properly for their management responsibilities. 54% said they were responsible for the whole rol...

By Salina Ventress     @salinaventress This week my youngest turns three, and it feels monumental. If, like me, you're a school leader or teacher and celebrate a 3 year old's birthday this March, congratulations; we made it. We've all been part of a club we never asked to join, where 'lockdown baby' became everyday vocabulary, and th...
