Continuing Professional Development Talks

As the author of Bloomsbury’s Engaging Parents, I offer a range of talks to staff across all educational settings, that are bespoke to the needs of your staff community. Typically, schools are interested in getting advice on how to engage parents more in children’s learning, improve staff training around difficult conversations with parents, and/or improving school communication to benefit home-school partnerships.  

Every talk begins with a small survey that I design and administer to your staff. With your permission, I also conduct an audit of parental feelings, expectations and experiences at your school. I use this data to inform my talk and ensure that it is truly bespoke.

Sometimes, this data generates questions about the way in which parents’ evenings are delivered, how parents receive information about their child’s progress or around how school reports are written. I offer a range of evidence-based tips, resources and cost-effective solutions to schools so that your CPD time and budget is well-spent and will actually lead to tangible outcomes.

Watch this to see how school staff have responded to my CPD sessions.

Every school is different and every CPD session will vary depending on the needs of your school, so please get in touch for an informal chat to see if I can help.

I have seen a positive impact from Kathy’s work. She has helped our school transform its approach to parental engagement. All of her sessions are meticulously planned and differentiated for the audience. A key to this success is Kathy’s strengths as a communicator. I would recommend Kathy to work with any school or organisation.
