Becky Teiger is a freelance education consultant with a passion for bringing learning to life!
Before moving into advisory work, she taught at a faith school in Leeds, leading EYFS and Key Stage One provision for 2 to 7 year olds, which under her leadership secured an Outstanding judgement. She worked for Leeds LA as a profile moderator with both state and independent schools before joining North Yorkshire LA as an early years adviser. Following a full team restructure, she took on a role as a 0-11 Education Development Adviser, working with head teachers and senior leaders across school clusters and teaching schools around the Harrogate, Skipton and Ripon areas.
Becky has offered coaching, mentoring and reflective feedback to local authority colleagues, head teachers, teachers, governors and early years practitioners. Her training covers a wide range of subjects including teaching, leadership and management, transitions, preparation for inspection and improving provision and practice. She gained most personal satisfaction from long-term relationships with schools in challenging circumstances, supporting teachers to improve communication channels within and across their teams and building greater self-confidence and resilience in school leaders.
In 2014, frustrated by the increasingly narrow school improvement agenda, Becky left her role to become a freelance education consultant. Since then she has worked with teachers, schools and academies across the whole of the North of England, providing advice, support, coaching and mentoring to practitioners and leaders facing significant structural changes, pressure to rapidly increase standards and uncertainty around job security and status within schools.
This independence has given Becky the opportunity to develop a more holistic, intuitive approach to her work, guiding staff to identify their own solutions to the challenges they face and develop the personal integrity and resilience to approach difficult situations with increasing confidence. She works with a calm, measured and supportive manner, encouraging individuals to face more challenging aspects of their role with honesty and openness.
A series of “happy synchronicities” brought Becky to the Oasis School of Human Relations and she is delighted to have joined its learning community and to be sharing the Whole Person approach in supporting personal development alongside wider education improvement agendas.
