Our consulting team can help you bring people, space, technology and learning culture together into a unified and actionable whole. Our consultants are all experienced educators.
Highly experienced in ways of work as well as learning and teaching, Education Strategy at Amicus is a unique blend of workplace and education expertise. Steve Collis and Sophie Fenton are experienced at tailoring solutions and facilitating change in educational settings.
Workplace and learning place boundaries are blurring, as classrooms become entrepreneurial education centres and workplaces engage in play and exploration. We understand that education consulting is about knowing both of these worlds. We can develop Future of Learning and Teaching strategy that marries real-world pedagogical experience with real-world design & build experience.
As change partner strategists, we can develop a workplace strategy to support new ways of working for your administration staff or design a professional development strategy to support new hybrid learning contexts.
We can consult on strategy at the School Master Plan stage, guiding the design of a new or re-purposed build with your educational imperatives at the centre of the strategy, because we know both: the build and the learning and teaching you want to see taking place in it.
As highly experienced change partners and designers of built environment, we can design spaces that foster modern teaching practices and develop strategies to their implementation. Our education consultants are experts in a wide range of pedagogies and curricula, and draw on this knowledge when designing new learning and teaching environments that promote 21st Century Learning, like Project-based Learning.
As strategists, we can work with you to plan for the adaptive re-use of existing buildings and transform them into Maker Spaces or collaborative learning spaces. This strategy can involve building design or learning and teaching design, as we support your learning community to transition to and gain optimum educational value from the new space.
We understand that learning environments are physical, experiential, pedagogical and technological. Our strategic planning includes the technology piece along with the pedagogy design.
As highly experienced educators and change partners, we can design modern teaching strategies to support the professional development of your teaching staff. Our education consultants are experts in a wide range of pedagogies and curricula, and can change partner with you in developing new learning and teaching experiences, including capabilities-based pedagogies and assessment techniques.
As education researchers and practitioners in futures of learning in schools and universities, we can consult in pedagogy design to enable hybrid and blended forms of learning, the authentication of remote assessment, or incorporate Extended Reality (XR) technologies for a remote immersive and active learning experience.
We understand that learning environments are the sum of their parts. Along with consultancy in learning and teaching, Amicus Education provides consultancy on educational leadership for changing times and workplace professional development in new ways of working for non-teaching staff.
