"I will help you channel your full potential!"

Kay Shaw

Managing Director

 

Hi! I’m Kay. It’s really good to meet you! It took my taking a risk to make my dream a reality; now let me help you make your dream come true too!

Read on to hear my success story……

Where to start?
I began my teaching career in 1994, and  swiftly moved up the ranks to culminate as a Head of School in 2004 and then a School Improvement Advisor in 2009.
During this time, I married, had two children, and managed and fronted a Blondie tribute band! All of these moves required confidence, organisation, resilience and patience which are definitely my strengths – and you could say I managed them all successfully.
But I hit an unfamiliar wall in 2015. My job no longer existed and I was faced with a time of great uncertainty. Did I accept a job that was desk based, just managing other people, or did I volunteer for redundancy and take my chances with my future?
This wasn’t an easy decision. I knew I would be unhappy in the new job I had been offered, but taking redundancy was a huge risk not just for myself but for my entire family. If I didn’t make a success of securing alternative enjoyable employment, apart from the financial implications, I’d be indefinitely unhappy.
I couldn’t secure a teaching job. I was told I lacked recent teaching experience and a current head teacher reference. Supply agencies wouldn’t even enrol me.
So what to do?
In this time of uncertainty, humiliation and frustration, there were many fears and tears. But I was then reminded by a very close friend that I was strong, brave, exceptional and inspiring, and because of my background I could do something with that.

Light bulb moment!

I could take the redundancy and set up a company that helped teachers return to teaching. And I could do the programme myself!
I had no idea how busy I would be. Applicants could live anywhere, and have a whole variety of individual requirements. But what I did know was that if there was a market out there now, there would always be a market.
And I have been happily proved right!
