About me

I am an experienced  inspector, author, trainer and educational consultant. I have worked directly with over 80 providers (including FE & sixth form colleges, local authorities, adult and community and independent learning providers), coaching challenging and supporting them to achieve significant and sustainable improvements for their staff and their learners.   Several of my clients have achieved outstanding status, and many improved their inspection outcomes, in some cases by two grades.  My work is not all about Ofsted though, I am passionate about learning and teaching, and am able to inspire  teachers and managers to realise their potential and achieve excellence for their learners.

I am the author of  ‘The Perfect FE Lesson‘, and co-author of the national occupational standards for personal tutoring.
