ManYana Education works mainly with schools, teachers and senior leaders to help them improve their work.
Peter Blenkinsop recently retired from the headship of a London Comprehensive school that was judged outstanding in its last Ofsted inspection.
Peter has worked for London Challenge as a Consultant Leader supporting established head teachers and has developed his coaching skills so that head teachers and other senior leaders are able to become more effective in their school.
ManYana Education was started to spread these ideas further.
Peter has also worked with schools in London, Bristol and Buckinghamshire delivering programmes to schools, working with head teachers and senior leadership teams and teachers as well as students.
Quality teaching and learning are critical to the success of any
school. ManYana programmes are designed to recognise this.

Effective use of data, for progress.
How much data do we need to have available and use to effectively identify progress for our students? Very little, actually. Schools are data rich but, often, information poor, HMI 2007.

OT1 – Outstanding lessons. What outstanding teaching looks like and how to achieve outstanding lessons.
SL1 – Coaching Training. Give your senior and middle leaders the skills to improve the performance of others. Their lessons will improve as well.
UD1 – Using Data. Do you want outstanding use of data? How little data do you need?
ML1 – Middle Leader Improvement. Middle leaders have a significant impact on the outcomes from your school. Is it as positive as you need? It could be.
HT1 – Consultant Leader support for the head teacher. Most captains of industry have their own coaches. Someone who can support you to think more clearly and solve problems more effectively.
S2G – Satisfactory to good. We actually call this The Aspiring Teacher Programme and we support through an INSET programme those teachers who are currently satisfactory but want to move to good.
As a Head Teacher I wanted best value from INSET and costly training.
The providers were usually professional and their material was good. However, they did not deliver material that was completely relevant to our school context.
We knew quite a lot and we believed that training for all staff and students was important. What we got, if we were not very careful, was a presentation that took little, if any, account of our prior experience and knowledge.
One trainer really impressed me. We had engaged him to work for ten days on improving middle managers; developing their ability to create engaging and exciting lessons.
What he did was adapt his material, and particularly his style, to take account of what we already knew and had recently worked on.
How did he do this? Quite simply he asked us about the school.
I have adopted that process. It takes only a little additional time but it can change the effectiveness of the INSET if the presenter is able to say, for example, "I understand you have covered managing behaviour well. What I will do follows on from that work by ...".
Our programmes are excellent and they will be of significant benefit to your staff, whatever stage they are at. We can tailor our work to meet your needs even more precisely.
