Bennie’s input has been invaluable in our school’s curriculum journey, focusing on designing and implementing a truly diverse curriculum. Her message has always been clear in terms of ensuring that whatever we do should not be tokenistic or “add ons”, but part of normal practice.
Jolande Botha-Smith – Deputy Headteacher – Tolworth Girls School

We wanted to challenge our staff to think differently about our curriculum, to look at it through different lenses and consider not only the gaps, but the stories we tell. Bennie’s CPD did just that. Engaging, informative, thought provoking… there was a real buzz afterwards. Thoroughly recommend!

Bennie delivered a session at our DHT conference to both primary and secondary leaders. It was engaging informative coupled with truly amazing authentic delivery. A number of leaders said she was one of the best speakers they had heard and best at the conference. We are asking her back.

Very interesting and helpful in terms of how to frame and present the case for a fuller focus on diversity.

A subtle, nuanced and still very clear approach to curriculum diversity. Insightful and illuminating; fully recommended.
Ormiston Forge Academy

Thank you so much for delivering the training. I found it incredibly powerful and it has certainly influenced conversation in my household already!
Ormiston Forge Academy

Engaging and relatable training. I felt fully engaged in the training rather than a just 'nod' to diversity like in most sessions. So great to have someone say how easy it can be to be inclusive, nice to have plenty of examples but also the acknowledgement of the difficulties too.
Jessie Mytum-Smithson – teacher of science

She spoke 'truth to power'. Bennie was incredibly engaging, both as a presenter and during individual conversations. I've had training that was titled 'diversity in education' before, but this was the first time it was really put into context with concrete examples. More importantly, the training provided both *strategies* AND time to discuss with colleagues how we might employ those strategies. It was an incredibly productive experience.
Lisa Niven – Chemistry Teacher / Resource Developer – Oak National Academy

Practical support around the process of curriculum adaptation to become more inclusive as a school. Very engaging and authentic presentation, great use of examples to illustrate issues and steps for improvement.
Malcolm White – Headteacher

The talk was inspirational
Headteacher – Roundwood Park School – Harpenden

Bennie was engaging and humorous. I was left with a number of really useful things that I can implement in my school e.g. curriculum audit. These are things that are often spoken about, however Bennie went a step further and showed us how to do them.
