Raising our own bar

At the start of 2015, the staff at Create Development were asked to consider an exciting, personal challenge and to explore what personal and professional learning they might gain from the experience. It had to be something that they really wanted to do, may have already planned to do and it had to be outside our traditional skill set or really difficult for us to achieve. Staff journeys were then documented in a blog.

The team set out on their challenges, some physical, some practical, some personal, in the hope that we could all experience the same progressive challenges as the amazing teachers we deliver to, increasing our empathy and improving our own practice. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing a selection of blogs documenting some of our successful and still progressing challenges, as we watch our team redefine what’s possible for themselves!

This week, we’ll be checking in with Jan Parker, who set herself the amazing task of completing the Manchester to Blackpool cycle ride in aid of the M.E. Association. Click here to view Part 1 of her fantastic adventure!
