Supported Experiments action research projects

“Joanne is an excellent consultant who is both knowledgeable and approachable. She has a flexible approach and is accommodating and very pleasant and enjoyable to work with. Joanne has helped our company and its subcontractors with implementing supported experiments to improve our maths teaching within apprenticeships. This has been highly valued by both staff and learners and we are now able to take this forward to improve our provision for the future”

Michelle Oliver, Director, Intuitions Ltd

“Joanne is an absolute pleasure to work with; her understanding, training ability and first-hand experience has undoubtedly enhanced our project and is helping to secure its success. Joanne’s advice on project management and training for our Coaches has been highly effective. Joanne has enthusiasm in bucket loads and a real energy that enthuses those around her.  She is professional and extremely focused and her support has been invaluable.  We are now in a position to plan for next year, making active learning and evidence based teaching strategies part of our culture, rather than a project.   Joanne has been a key part of this and I am sure we will be working closely with her in the future.”

Janet Walker, Quality and Learning Improvement Manager, Wakefield College

“Joanne has worked with Leeds City College to launch our Communities of Professional Practice which has really taken off! Her knowledge and enthusiasm are second to none and I can wholeheartedly recommend her.”

Nichola Newton, Deputy Principal, Leeds City College

“Joanne has worked very effectively with a large group of staff at Nescot on the introduction, planning and monitoring of supported experiments. Joanne has led several workshops that colleagues have thoroughly enjoyed and been provided with tools that they could put into practice at once. Joanne’s approach has enabled us to anticipate potential problems and to tap in to a broad range of strategies for taking teaching and learning further and quicker.”

Cliff Hall, Deputy Principal, NESCOT

The input from Joanne Miles throughout  New College Durham’s Focus on Teaching for Learning has been integral to its success. Joanne has been vital in the Project Team maintaining focus; she provided fresh impetus at key stages of the project. The opportunity for the Project Leaders to use Joanne as a sounding board maintained focus and  empowered them to achieve their goal. She is inspirational and professional.
