As an experienced English consultant, Susie Spolander works nationally and internationally with schools, academies, partnerships and organisations to develop and improve all aspects of English across the primary age range. Using her knowledge of the curriculum, assessment and effective teaching and learning practices, she successfully supports many schools — leaders, teachers and support staff — to improve outcomes for their pupils.
In her 20+ year career in education, Susie has enjoyed classroom teaching across EYFS to Year 6 and a range of leadership posts. Her passion for leading improvement in English then led her to work as an English Consultant, firstly for Oxfordshire’s School Improvement Team and now independently.
Susie has written, developed and led a wide variety of training events, programmes and projects to address current educational priorities, and also works with publishers to develop educational products and their accompanying professional development programmes.
