I feel that my personal skills have been enhanced. I feel confident that I have an expert that I can go to for advice and reassurance. Students are receiving a calmer environment in which reactions are measured and reflection is managed. As a result, there is reduced staff/student conflict and reduced staff assaults. The staff have had a restructure as Innovating Minds helped us to see that the requirements of this new direction were not congruent with the current staff job descriptions and skills. Michele Lentes, Deputy Head Teacher, Young People's Academy
The staff are more open to constructive criticism and are more supportive of each other. They are more understanding of the students difficulties and non-judgemental. They do not seek punishment for student’s negative behaviours. Laurie Cornwell, Executive Head teacher, The Skills Hub.
Yes. It has helped steer a cultural change and tackled issues at various levels. This is not done for or to you, but with you. Laurie Cornwell, Executive Head teacher, Young People's Academy.
I wish I had found Innovating Minds sooner, I knew I needed this support for my staff but I did not know what I was looking for.
