Who we are

Athene Education Ltd is a dynamic young company, leading the way in providing a wealth of educational expertise on a wide range of school improvement activities. Established by Dr Julia Coop, a successful head teacher, experienced school inspector and a leading expert in the field of school improvement, effectiveness and inclusion, the company is driven by a single minded philosophy: to help schools build an internal capacity to improve and to inspire excellence.

Julia and her team of highly experienced associates, recognise that school budgets are constrained. Therefore, we provide cost effective training solutions for schools including; Teaching Schools, Academy Trusts, School Alliances and Local Authorities, in your own premises. We also provide a range of bespoke and personalised approaches, to support, challenge, motivate and inspire staff to achieve outstanding results for their children. We are able to work in a wide range of settings including those who are working in challenging circumstances, to those who want to go the extra mile to achieve or sustain excellence.

School Training

Our suite of interactive and engaging training courses are continually updated and led by one of our educational experts. They are designed to focus on current educational issues. The courses focus on building and developing expertise in order that delegates can use their updated and enhanced skills to support and drive school improvement.

We can also adapt any of our courses for your school′s specific needs and priorities, as well as providing a bespoke package of training courses for your Inset or to meet the training requirements of your wider network. In addition, we offer a unique range of blended training and within school consultancy solutions that bring a unique personal perspective to your experience. In addition, we are able to work with you to build a completely bespoke package of training and/or consultancy to target your school’s specific development areas and raise standards in your school.

Additional services

We recognize that schools are continually under pressure to raise standards. The stress of an impending inspection, together with the changes to the curriculum and assessment, add considerably to the burden on staff to ‘get things right’. That is why we provide a wider range of services to support your school improvement initiatives including: Inspection, reviews advice and within school support. Athene consultants are all experienced school inspectors, therefore we can provide high quality, objective School Evaluation and Reviews. We also offer Collaborative Reviews in partnership with school leaders. Working along side our consultant, staff gain invaluable experience, which not only supports capacity building, but also ensures that self-evaluation skills are honed.

We believe that school improvement is a journey. Whether you are working hard to be removed from a category judgment, striving to secure good or determined to gain outstanding, a package of supportive yet challenging Monitoring Visits can be arranged. We are happy to support you in developing Focused Lesson Observations, undertake Department Reviews, work with you to develop your Middle leadership skills, and provide Governor workshops. These activities can be stand alone packages or become additional to our aligned training courses.

In addition, we can undertake Headteachers appraisal and provide help with Data Analysis and how to present this to Ofsted.
