Amjad Ali

Leadership Trainer, Leadership Key Note

If you would like an engaging, thought-provoking INSET/CPD delivered by a practising Senior Leader, Teacher and SENCO then I am your man. I work 4 days a week as an Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for Teaching and Learning along with Inclusion. I am a qualified SENCO and have a real depth of experience in Pupil Premium needs and funding.

In my delivery I will always get attendees to reflect on their current practice, they will then receive tried and tested, low effort, high impact ideas from me, followed by a carefully designed way to allow attendees to learn from one another.

I have also been invited to work with The Chartered College, British Council, ASCL, Optimus Education, HAYS, The Telegraph Education Festival and various other annual events.

Amjad Ali’s expertise and knowledge on how to drive attainment for pupil premium children in our school was just what we needed. He was able to objectively look at our current documentation and strategies and help us to ask the right questions about what we wanted to achieve and how to put that into action. Amjad was able to both show how good use of pupil premium money impacted on the attainment and progress of pupil premium children through clear, simple strategies and action plans that focussed primarily on teaching and learning and whole school accountability. We came away with some great recommendations that have already begun to impact on our evaluation of this year’s PP strategy plan and ideas for how we can use our PP spend far more effectively and report impact to our stakeholders. I highly recommend Amjad to any school that could do with having an external expert support them in reviewing their Pupil Premium strategies and spend. We can’t thank him enough.

Deputy Headteacher, Parson Street Primary

I have worked with Amjad for a number of years now across a number of Schools covering both primary and secondary phase. This year (2017-2018), I have asked Amjad to plan a significant level of CPD for a range of our staff. I am constantly inspired by his approach to his training events. As a teacher, first and foremost, he is an incredibly inspirational practitioner. His passion does not stop at the classroom door but is now evident in his work with professional colleague’s across the country and even internationally. All of his ideas and materials are tried and tested and backed up by relevant research. Each time he has worked with me our staff have been overwhelmed with the practical ideas they have come away with and the energy and enthusiasm for thisprofession and our children that is at the very core of Amjad’s approach.

Andy Snipp
Headteacher, St Peter's Middle School

Amjad has worked with John Madejski Academy to support our rapid improvement for 6 months now. (From April 2017 to present.) His wealth of experience and expertise have facilitated developments in SEND and across the school more widely. Working closely with Senior and Middle Leaders, Amjad has advised and guided our work around improving outcomes for disadvantaged students and his knowledge and understanding of this area has proved to be invaluable to the academy. Amjad has led some excellent professional development sessions and across the academy staff have used techniques and ideas that are engaging learners and igniting discussions about pedagogy and how we can best impart knowledge. Staff have enjoyed working with Amjad and it has been a pleasure to see him working so closely and positively with our staff.
