Astute, and Mel in particular, really helped me to get my head around my position as Educational Leader at my centre. I had been in the role for a couple of years with no real direction or clear idea of what my job involved. Mel worked with me and gave me clear guidelines and processes to put into place to effectively fulfil my role. I am now an important part of our leadership team and am enjoying empowering the other teachers to consistently reflect on and improve their practice.

We are lucky to have had the opportunity to work closely with Mel and her team.
