Whatever support your school needs, Trainovate is here to help.

Our consulting team are experienced in school leadership and inspections, teaching and learning, data analysis and assessment methods. From self-evaluation tools and comprehensive reviews to professional development and bespoke consultancy support, we can tailor our services to meet your needs.

A. School Self-Evaluation

The School Self-Evaluation includes a range of data-collection methods, enabling school leaders to identify strengths within their organisation and pinpoint areas for improvement. Firstly, school leaders will meet with one of our experienced International Consultants to discuss the self-evaluation’s scope and focus. The consultant will then guide the leadership team through the evaluation process, which includes:

  • The completion of a comprehensive self-evaluation, using our bespoke evaluation tool.
  • Email templates to communicate the process with the school community.
  • Online surveys to gather data from parents, teachers and pupils.

Our consultants will then conduct an extensive data analysis, producing a detailed report for the leadership team, followed by a strategy meeting with the lead consultant, to discuss the report’s outcomes and agree on next steps.

B. 360° School Review

Our comprehensive 360° School Review is a responsive process that helps leaders evaluate their school’s effectiveness and guide future strategy. Our 360° Reviews promote a culture of excellence, so your school can reach the highest possible standards.

The consulting team is experienced in school leadership and inspections, teaching and learning, data analysis and assessment methods. They will guide you through the review process step-by-step, using a range of data from meetings, surveys, observations, pupil work and document reviews. Firstly, school leaders will meet with one of our experienced International Consultants to discuss the review’s scope and focus. The consultant will then guide the leadership team through the Review process, which includes:

1) The Pre-Visit Phase

During this phase, the school completes the Trainovate Self-Evaluation Tool and distributes the online surveys to the community. The school also sends various information to our consultants who analyse all documentation in preparation for the review phase.

2) The Review Phase

During the review, the lead consultant visits the school and conducts meetings with school leaders, teachers, pupils and parents, and observations of lessons and break times. In addition, the lead consultant will analyse schemes of work, school policies, pupil’s work, assessment data, premises, facilities, and health and safety practices.

3) Post-Review Phase

After the visit, Trainovate will provide the school with a comprehensive report of their findings, along with a summary of main strengths and opportunities for improvement. In partnership with the consultancy team, the school will create a plan for future strategy.

At the heart of Trainovate’s working practice is the coaching method, which empowers leaders at all levels to lead learning and sustainable transformation in their schools. The review service can be fully adapted to the needs of your school, focusing on areas of particular interest.

Trainovate can support this process with coaching and professional development for all members of the community, according to their needs.
