Our tailored services

Working out which instructional approaches are best for your teaching team and students takes time and can be challenging. Our tailored professional development sessions make it easy for you and your team. 
We introduce your team to the variety of approaches and programs and discuss how they can be implemented effectively in your school setting. We gather information from you about your school before sessions and then explore different options on how your school can adopt approaches and programs to meet your goals.
Our professional development is designed to meet your needs. We can tailor an implementation to your school roles, your goals and current levels of knowledge. Our professional development is available both in-person at your school or online. Sessions can range in duration from 60 minutes to a full day, depending on your needs. 

Sessions can include activities like:  
  • unpacking the evidence
  • reviewing case studies of similar schools
  • investigating programs
  • studying forms of implementation 
  • question and answer sessions. 

Our consultants can tailor a session to your needs.
