Secondary schools

"It was a pleasure to work with Robert to deliver our inset on active teaching and learning. The sessions were tailored to the needs of our school and the staff were genuinely enthused and engaged by the presentation. Robert's style is down-to-earth, practical and humorous. He cuts through the gimmicks and offers a repertoire of excellent ideas which have a genuine impact on pupils' learning."

Lee Thomas - Headmaster, Stafford Grammar School 



"Robert Powell’s visionary approach highlights consistency rather than conformity and inspires the hearts and minds of teachers. I can honestly say that his philosophy, and the practical strategies he is renowned for, have had a bigger impact upon my school than any other author or trainer I have met in my 18 years as a headteacher."
Jim Godfrey, Headteacher (now retired), Marston Vale Middle School, Beds.


"We were absolutely delighted with how well the training day went last week. The feedback from staff was immensely positive, with a number describing it as “inspirational” and “the best training day I have ever been to”. Certainly, from the school’s point of view, it achieved the two key objectives of launching our review of teaching and learning excellence whilst at the same time providing staff with a wealth of good ideas which they could readily implement in their own teaching.,
John Hartley, Headteacher, (now retired), Saffron Walden County High School, Essex 

"Two weeks on and members of staff are still talking about areas that were covered on that day. Teaching and learning are at the forefront of everyone’s minds, which has led to the Leadership Team responding to their request to bring Robert back for further work with subject teams."
Kevin Blakey, Vice Principal, Thetford Academy 

"Simply, Robert elicited from the Stowe staff the most positive response we’ve ever had to a communal day’s INSET."

Stephen Hirst, Director of Studies, Stowe School

Primary schools

"Through his positive integrity, truthfulness and straightforward conduct, I would highly recommend his training to other primary schools. One of the best inspirational trainers I have come across in my 20+ years in education."
Mrs Jennifer Seabright, Headteacher, Alexandra Park Junior School, Oldham


"We have worked with Robert Powell on an innovative project involving 800+ staff across 5 sites delivering excellence in teaching, learning and assessment. Lecturers have been inspired with practical strategies useful for any subject or level. Robert’s inset has been enjoyable, thought-provoking and evidence-based and the sessions have helped us to move further forward on our journey to excellence. Definitely recommended."
Nicola Gamblin, Vice Principal, Coleg Gwent, South Wales
