Feedback From The Profession

Ross McGill has worked hundreds of organisations across the U.K. and in Belarus, Germany, Canada, China, Cyprus, Spain, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.

It is a rarity to deliver CPD that can hook even the most ‘experienced’ of teachers, introduce new ideas, create a to-do-list as long as your arm and then show you how to do it all in 5 minutes, but Ross managed to do all of this in just a morning!

As ever, Ross has his finger on the pulse of global education. Up-to-date, challenging, entertaining and inspiring. This is why we keep coming back for more!

I was immediately struck by Ross’ no-nonsense, practical advice and superb style of delivery … even my two deputies who been at the school for 30 years and retiring soon, were caught engrossed in his book the next day!

Rooted in real-life situations and instead of adding to workload, the focus is truly on working more effectively to have a greater impact on the progress of the pupils.

I sat in Ross’ training before Easter realising I wished I was back in the classroom and, just before half term, took the plunge and am going back as an English Teacher in September – having stopped as a deputy headteacher.

Ross led a 3-hour session for a group of heads and senior leaders from 8 primary schools in Exeter. Ross gave us exactly what we asked for, leaving us with practical strategies that will improve all of our schools. A brilliant morning!

The buzz Ross created was palpable, the confidence we gained as a team was profound; the session – which was thoroughly tailored to the needs of our school – was delivered in a supportive and stimulating manner. It really was a remarkable learning experience which I can’t recommend enough!

Practical, energising and a genuine champion of the craft of teaching. There are ideas, anecdotes and a seemingly endless number of suggestions. The research is there to provoke and push us all forward.

Stuart Worden, principal, The BRIT School

Ross emulates empathy and understanding of the pressures teachers are under. His toolkit is invaluable and each member of staff left the training session with practical takeaways which can be easily implemented.
