Lesson Observations

Ruth Kendrick, Head of Teaching and Learning, Lambeth College – The Careers College

“Joanne’s support, expert knowledge and guidance has enabled us to implement a shift of mind-set from graded observation to developmental observations across the college. Joanne leaves no stone unturned and worked with our organisation carefully tailoring training to suit our precise needs combining sensitivity and rigour. It is this approach that has enabled us to make a transition which we are sure will improve teaching, learning and assessment for our learners.Thanks Joanne!”
