Following a thirty-year career as a teacher and a leader at different levels, I left full-time headship in 2010 and since then I have:
- Completed a Professional Doctorate in Education at the University of Nottingham, researching the transition to headship
- Written a book about my research and experience: ‘Making the Leap – Moving from Deputy to Head’ (Crown House 2016) https://www.crownhouse.co.uk/publications/making-the-leap
- Carried out a range of educational consultancy work, mainly leadership related, including leadership training, headteacher and senior leader appointments, appraisal/professional review and coaching.
I am a strong advocate for the power of Twitter and blogs for networking and professional development in education. Follow me at @jillberry102
