Flexible and Supportive Facilitation

“In 2017 and 2018 we were fortunate enough to gain the expertise of Vision’s facilitators to deliver professional development to our Kāhui Ako. The facilitators were flexible and supported the leaders to meet the needs of all our learners both students and teachers. We are excited about the changes in teaching practice our kaiako made and continue to make,  for better outcomes for our tamariki in literacy”.

Skillful and Strategic Professional Learning

“Our Vision facilitator (Justine) built positive relationships with everyone she worked alongside and skillfully aligned her sessions with what we needed to develop in our practice based on our strategic aims.  Her professional development with staff has grown teacher knowledge, improved practice and accelerated progress for our learners.”

Research Based, Flexible Professional Development

“Over 2018 and 2019 we have had the opportunity to work with the team from Vision Education including Alison Davis and Justine Brock.  Their expertise based on relevant and up to date educational pedagogy coupled with an ability to form working relationships has meant many successes for us.  Practice has been strengthened at many levels from classroom practitioners to curriculum leaders and leadership with their flexible approach that is grounded in research and best practices”

Knowledgeable and Authentic Professional Development

Benneydale School has been working with Leitia for 2 years in a wide range of capacities. Leitia has run a number of Teacher Only Days focusing on effective literacy practice in the classroom and she has modelled and supported best practice related to differentiated learning programs that support accelerated learning. Leitia has worked alongside teachers in the classroom providing feedback and support on teacher effectiveness. She has supported planning meetings with teachers and worked with them to refine their programs through using a coaching model. Evidence of teacher growth due to these coaching sessions can be seen in class practice. We have found Leitia to be very knowledgeable, quick to understand our needs and work with us to create our own PLD journey. I would recommend Leitia as a facilitator for any school wanting to provide authentic opportunities for staff to challenge their thinking and work towards enhancing their practice for the benefit of all learners.

Inspirational Educators

The leadership and professional learning collaboratively planned and then delivered has had a positive impact on the teaching and learning in our school. It has been a privilege to work with such inspirational educators from this very professional organisation”

Supportive and Exciting Professional Learning

‘Vision Education, through Alana Cantley, is facilitating literacy learning and teaching through a co-constructive approach with our teachers to build capacity in Literacy.  Our teachers feel privileged and fully supported by Alana’s unobtrusive mannerisms and are excited and encouraged by their new learning. We are noticing transfer of skills across our curriculum namely in our student led inquiries.  Our students are enjoying writing, they know where they are at, where to next and what they need to do along the way. Our PCT’s are immersed in their new learning and regularly discuss the extensive value of their co-planning, co-teaching sessions with Alana and how this learning is supporting and strengthening their depth of reflection and growing pedagogy.’
