Coaching the #WomenEd Way

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...

Musings from the Interview Arena

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...

It isn’t the time

By Claire Harley @clairevh How do you find the time? Something you've probably said to yourself about three times already this week. As an assistant principal, mum and EdD candidate I get where you're coming from. The past two months, however, have helped me to re-evaluate what time really means and have helped me find perspective in a way I wasn't...

Celebrating a three year old’s birthday this month? Congratulations!

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.

The Power of Women United #EmbraceEquity #IWD2023

By Yasmin Ariff    @AriffYasmin Just before the pandemic started in 2020, I attended my first women's networking event hosted by #WomenEd London at Sarah Bonnell School in London. I don't think I had ever existed in a space like I did that day. I felt: An unspoken kind of safety, knowing that this community embodied inclusivity Increasing...

Our beautiful, messy rainbow. #EmbraceEquity #IWD2023

By beautiful, messy rainbow Parmjeet Plummer @ParmPlummer The 8th of March has become a day that holds significance and power for me in recent years. In the past, if I am honest, it has passed me by. Yet another tokenistic day to recognise something that, all things being considered, should not require it. Every day should be for men and women, all...

Not Looking Outwards... Becoming the Woman I Want To Be

By Lucie Ager   @lucie_ager A thought from #WomenEd sparks my need to write. Was I the woman I wanted to be? This question came to me on the back of a comment on a post on LinkedIn with the artwork of a female profile and the words 'I love the person I've become because I fought to become her', which is catchy and massively thought-provok...

By Keziah Featherstone   @keziah70     When I was younger and at the start of my career, I fought for myself and I fought for the kids. Having spent the vast majority of my career serving communities experiencing substantial and layered disadvantage, there was much to fight for. With regards to myself, I was a gobby working clas...

By Nasima Riazat   @NSRiazat 'Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher' Oprah Winfrey When I set up my @NSRiazat account on Twitter in 2009, at the time it was still a social media platform which was still forming with few people using it.

Virtual Reality In Teaching Must Be About More Than Riding Rollercoasters #WomenEd Tech

By Kate Sida-Nicholls @SidaNicholls The use of technology in teaching and learning has developed exponentially since COVID.  Three years ago, colleagues from the #EdTech world were confused and disheartened about how teachers could not appear to accept the opportunities that the use of technology could have on supporting their teaching and wor...
