Review

'Aimed primarily at school managers and teachers (but generally relevant to others in the education and training sectors), Managing Teacher Workload is very well written, and very comprehensive. It provides a good mix of hard fact (even to relevant UK recommendations and legislation); references to books and other writings and to websites; activities; and examples and anecdotes. All that makes the book quite easy to work with and to read' - British Journal of Educational Technology 'Helping Teachers Develop is a positive, uplifting, encouraging publication ... It is the sort of publication we need in the profession and it is well worth being part of every head teacher or staff development tutor's collection of really useful books. I have to confess, even before I had finished reading it for review I was using Helping Teachers Develop with my trainee teachers' - Peter Stammers, in the Journal of In-service Education '...their strategies are useful, thoroughly researched and written in readable, unfussy language. In short, they have produced something that could go some way towards rousing teachers from the bad dream.' - The Times Educational Supplement 'This book deserves to be the standard introduction to teachers' abilities to achieve a work-life balance. It reflects the challenges and the changes facing teachers, dealing effectively with both the big picture and the fine details that matter most.' - Dr Mary Bousted, General Secretary, Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) "This book is intended for teachers and school leaders in the field who are actively seeking ways to reduce stress, prioritize tasks as well as optimize the time spent on tasks while at work...Teachers willing to engage in (the) self-reflective exercises will find Managing Teacher Workload: Work-Life Balance and Wellbeing a valuable resource in discovering teaching as a fulfilling and satisfying profession." -- Cristy A. Jefson, Ph.D., CHES

With a national and international reputation in the induction of new teachers and professional development, Sara speaks at conferences and runs courses throughout the country and abroad (e.g. Norway, Taiwan) on topics such as helping staff develop, observation skills, induction, developing pedagogical skills, leading continuing professional development (CPD), subject leadership, monitoring teaching and implementing performance management. She has featured on and been a consultant for eight Teachers TV programmes. She trains a broad range of people, including inspectors, assessors, advisers, consultants, Fasttrack, TeachFirst and advanced skills teachers. Sara assesses advanced skills, excellent, overseas trained and graduate teachers and higher level teaching assistants and was an external assessor for Threshold. She has inspected over 25 primary schools. As a senior lecturer at the Institute of Education (0.2) she works on PGCE and Masters programmes and set up the employment-based routes (OTT and GTP) to QTS. She is lead director of the CfBT Education Trust-funded Sef2Si - From Self Evaluation To School Improvement: The Importance Of Professional Development - project. She co-directed the DfES-funded national research Project on the Effectiveness of the Induction Year, was deputy director of the TDA systematic review of induction research and has helped the Northern Ireland GTC revise their teacher competences. On a 0.2 secondment to the DCSF London Challenge team, Sara is the consultant for Chartered London Teacher status - a scheme involving over 38,600 teachers. She is the London Gifted & Talented Early Years network leader, working with staff in reception and nursery classes to enhance their provision for all children, especially the most able.
