JOB EMBEDDED, PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

OUR FOCUS

Transforming Together is a unique consulting business focused on the Educational Professional Development of Christian colleges and schools throughout Australia. We offer a unique set of services where we work with individuals and teams to improve education and teaching practices. Our focus is to to be the bridge to support change from current school culture to a culture of collaborative innovation.

Our point of difference is that we offer an alternative to external training courses.  While these have their place in professional development, we believe that a more targeted approach delivers better results.  We partner with you to understand your needs and collaborate to create a tailored solution specific to your teachers needs.  We then deliver the agreed program onsite and then provide ongoing individual support for your teachers to help embed the learning.

By working with us you receive an external perspective with a unique vantage point.  Other benefits include:

  • Training in, implementation and support of staff collaboration;
  • An enabler of teacher-driven innovation, which is a problem solving process, harnessing the creative talent of educators and students;
  • Empowerment of teachers as creative professionals engaged in an iterative design process built on a foundation of research-informed professional wisdom;
  • A trusted friend, a sounding board, a witness to the good;
  • A person who listens, empathizes, and encourages their colleagues respectfully and non-judgmentally; and
  • An intermediary for confidential discussions.
