How does a teacher become a Genie?
“Working with a Genie has created a collaborative culture, which has replaced one of mistrust and toxicity. The genie has left a legacy of a superb professional, cultural and social capital and great results.”
– Primary school headteacher
The Genie programme trains a genie to enhance the working of their school. Learning about how teams and individuals work from a behavioural and psychological point of view gives the genies perspectives that benefit the whole school community.
All Genies are trained on a 5-module course that can be done part-time or fast-track. This happens alongside their work in schools and comprises elements of coaching, behavioural psychology, ethics, confidentiality and supervision. They also benefit personally from the self-reflection that takes place throughout the programme. Genies are self-aware, happy, fulfilled people who can enable this in others!
The next cohorts of Genies starts Autumn 2023. If you are located in the south-west of England, you can join our Cornwall cohort, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find our about national and MAT cohorts near you.
“People are excited about working with the Genie. The time just flies by in coaching sessions and you can see that teachers are making changes to their work as a result of the genie’s work. They are given the control. They are the ones taking the action. It’s awesome!”
