English Faculty Consultancy: Creating a Culture of Reading

Clare Mackie – Haileybury Head of English and Victorian Academy Master Teacher of English. Leon has been an invaluable asset in supporting our team in challenging preconceived assumptions about the way to approach teaching texts in an English classroom, and increasing capacity and efficacy in aspiring for a more student focused and skills based method. His manner is approachable and engaging, and through providing a balance between theory and practical strategies, all teachers feel empowered to make change in their pedagogy.
