Spencer Cartwright - Educational Consultant
MOTIVATED BY CHANGE.
At the heart of education is change: changing learners’ understanding in order to change their ability to achieve. Every teacher set out to make a difference through change and it’s change that helps us all develop and grow as professionals and as people.
I have spent over 25 years studying and working in the primary education sector and have the honour of working with a wide range of professionals from many schools and settings in many different contexts. One constant over that time has been the drive and desire of classroom teachers to do the very best they can for their learners despite all the challenges they face. I have always sought to find practical and achievable ways for teachers to achieve the best they can for their learners, while ensuring strategies are time-efficient, manageable and above all, effective. Working with fellow professionals, I have been able to coach and support classroom teachers in changing their practice and the learning experiences offered, in order to achieve a great education for their learners.

LEARNING MUST COME FIRST.
The business of schools is learning. Everything a teacher does must support this. Whether it’s helping children learn the curriculum, learning to be more considerate, learning to be more aware or learning more about the craft of educating, it’s a teacher’s role to promote and inspire learning. My work takes this as its starting point and I work to help teachers become better at the business of learning.
Through all the projects, initiatives and training that I have created and delivered, I have always put children’s learning at the heart of the strategies I have shared. Teachers need practical and workable solutions to help them support their children’s success. The impact my work has consistently seen teachers become more able and more confident in developing quality learning experiences for their children.
RESULTS DRIVEN SUPPORT
When working with teachers, no matter what the topic, I always begin with their point of understanding and experience and relate ideas and advice to their unique situation. In this way, actions taken will be more successful and longer lasting.
Empathy - Collaborative - Supportive - Challenging
I have supported hundreds of teaching over the past 12 years with their particular needs and requirements, and always ensure my support is tailored to their situation and context to help them take immediate action.
For long lasting success and sustainable improvements, I believe in empowering teachers through a systematic coaching approach to help them feel valued and in control in an every changing and confusing education system.
Whether it’s 1-to-1 support, large group training or conference presentations, I always seek to ignite teachers’ passion and reinvigorate motivation in order to make positive and sustainable change happen from within.
