‘Karen’s unfailing encouragement and guidance helped me attain my NPQSL (National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership) a couple of years ago. I always enjoyed her inspirational training sessions and came away having learnt something new and useful, which I could then apply to my role at school. The qualification has enabled me to progress in my career as well as facilitating a supportive network of contacts.’

‘Karen sponsored and coached me through the NPQML (National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership) programme and her support was invaluable. Her analysis and re-framing of the difficulties I was facing helped me stand back and re-assess my approach. Throughout the process Karen both listened to me and challenged me. Her rigorous and kind approach helped me to succeed at the course and I am still using the tools she equipped me with today.’

‘In all the sessions Karen facilitated she was well-prepared, highly professional and had clearly thought about the course materials and delivery from our perspective. We were expertly guided through the sessions but were also given time to really talk things through. I remember thinking during the course that she would be someone I would like to work with again one day. I hope you get the chance.’

‘I worked with Karen throughout my NQT year. Her expertise and knowledge were complemented by her warmth and genuine support at every meeting, observation or chat along the corridor. Embedded into my teaching are many of Karen’s hints and tips and I look back fondly on the thoughtful and timely advice she gave me at the start of my career and continue to use these as I move forward’
