My name is Sarah Pook and I am the Hampshire County Advisor for Design and Technology.

 I have previously worked in industry and mainstream education. I have been a Lead Practioner of Design and Technology. I have also been Head of Food Technology and have been Head of Design Technology.

So what can I offer you?

  • Advice on Health and Safety in the Design Technology classrooms
  • Health and Safety training courses for Design and Technology teachers
  • NQT and Schools Direct support
  • Experience of working in underperforming departments and improving GCSE results and progress.
  • Creating schemes of work suitable for students with diverse cultural and educational needs, enabling students to learn theory through practical experiences, addressing their specific needs through the use of different learning approaches, in order to support their further progress.
  • Comprehensive financial and educational proposals for re-introduction of specific Design and Technology subjects to the curriculum
  • Procedural changes in Food Technology Departments to eradicate the non-participation of Pupil Premium students
  • Coaching teachers
  • Up-skilling non subject specialists
  • Experience of supporting Design Technology at KS1/2

I also have also worked on whole school CPD for the following:

  • Bridging the gap between pupil premium and non-pupil premium students

  • Implementing effective behaviour management

The list above is by no means exhaustive but just an idea of some of the support I can offer. If you feel that I could be of use to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
