2018 – What A Great International Year for the Golden Model!
“Thank you very much. I believe Jenny’s time with us has started a positive growth in our health & wellbeing programme; as well as, establishing a more positive ethos in the school.” Tim Stearns (New International School, Tokyo) 2018
With Jenny taking the Golden Model to: Japan, Chile, New Zealand and Kuwait – it really has been an international year. We have worked with the wonderful Maggie Dent in Australia and are just preparing the paperwork for the NABSS (National Association of British Schools in Spain) 2019 Conference in March. Each country has worked amazingly with all the ideas and we have had wonderful follow-up reports and projects running in Chile and New Zealand. Here’s a little testimonial from the great Kuwaiti school that Jenny worked in during November 2018.
“Jenny was a much needed breath of fresh air and delivered our training with passion and boundless energy. Her ability to gauge very quickly our school’s needs and adapt her sessions is an indication of her enormous experience in the field. She was honest throughout and was able to deliver some tough messages through kindness, attentiveness and empathy. We are so thrilled to now start implementing the great work Jenny did with us and are excited to continue this relationship with her!” Matthew Connell, Primary Principal, Kuwait Bilingual School
International Baccalaureate and the Golden Model
Jenny is increasingly working with IB schools and the Golden Model fits really well with the aims of IB and PYP. Here are a couple of articles of interest – one written by Jenny for the IB World magazine, the other is a discussion document: IB and Jenny Mosley’s QCT – A Discussion Document
Jenny As A Key International Trainer
“Just to say that Jenny has delivered in Nelson most successfully over our 4 days!! As she was when I first met Jenny; dynamic, beautiful and her vision and presentation style are second none in the world!! We have had thank yous from participants overnight and this morning. This tells everything as so often little comes back. Jenny has certainly spread her very special ‘Jenny star-dust’ across this region. Just wanted to say thanks. What an extraordinary lady!!!” Lyn Evans, Nelson Bays RTLB Cluster Manager, New Zealand 2016
Jenny’s Whole School Model has proved time and time again that it works in many different cultures. Additionally, Jenny has successfully implemented staff training, provided consultancy and established school systems in many local and international schools. Countries include: New Zealand, Australia, Dubai, Denmark,India, Hong Kong, Qatar, Japan, Vietnam, Brazil, Cayman Islands and many European countries. Training consists of conferences, working with groups of schools, Train The Trainers projects and consultation. Therefore international training forms an important part of Jenny’s work.
“Thank you @JennyMosleyQCT for inspiring @BST_Tokyo with your insight into powerfully positive playtimes – we are really excited to bring lots of fresh and engaging games on to our playgrounds!” Richard Taylor, Assistant Head of Primary Learning and Teaching, British School in Tokyo 2018
Jenny’s Work As An International Trainer
Jenny is frequently invited to work with staff in both international and local schools. Most of all this work includes moral values and many aspects of the QCT model. For instance, developing emotional literacy and social skills, promoting communication and positive behaviour in children. Since these values remain the same wherever you are.
“I thank you for your amazing presentation of such a life-changing philosophy. Also for the positive programme that sustains respectful and systematic life in schools. Long may your bubbly enthusiasm spread the message that educators need to adopt and adapt into their own ecological environments. This is for the wellbeing and growth of all there. I was so fortunate to be part of this group of like-minded people all enjoying the learnings and revisiting that you have so generously imparted to us.” Julie Fox – Cluster Manager, Nga Hau e Wha Papakura/Pukekohe Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour 2016
Therefore, Jenny can work with all of your pupils and staff as an international trainer. So this can be during working in school days or hold a conference with exciting workshops and memorable speeches. Jenny can also deliver a Train The Trainers course that lasts a few days to take teachers through Jenny’s Whole School Model. Furthermore this approach literally transforms your school. Alternatively, we can arrange for Jenny to work in one school one day and another school the next day.
International Trainer – Train the Trainers Courses
Jenny has run very successful Train the Trainers courses in many different countries. As an example, as an international trainer in New Zealand, Jenny has really enjoyed running some super Train the Trainers courses. See Jenny’s blog about a transformative international Train the Trainers course.
“People matter most. If that is so, then how is this reflected in the way we value and give time to nurture dreams, share problems and celebrate successes? As a Headteacher of three very different schools in my career so far, I have found that ‘Quality Circle Time’ as an approach, builds within a learning community an effective framework for the development of these essential social and emotional skills. ‘Golden Time’ for me fosters a unique and tailored reward system that identifies good learner behaviours and celebrates the individual success of all achievers, whilst quietly challenging those who are yet to catch on.
As a Headteacher I have found these systems to be of fundamental value in developing the staff and children in my care. If people really do matter, then curriculum time spent effectively in this way, reaps rewards above and beyond the classroom itself and long into the future.” Mr. Richard Vaughan, Headteacher of An Phu Primary Campus, British International School, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
International Trainer School Case Study
Interestingly, Jenny has worked as an international trainer with the amazing St Paul’s School in Sao Paulo, Brazil many times. Amazingly, the school has a history of dynamic and progressive leadership. Also the leaders are willing to embrace change. They work hard, in addition to all their other aims, at finding new ways of supporting and motivating pupils to achieve their very best. Consequently these were Jenny’s parting comments on departure from Brazil after one of her training trips:
“So good luck to St Paul’s school. We are on a journey. With kindness and gentleness and regular circle time for the adults – we will all, young people, parents, teachers, admin, catering and support staff, see ourselves as part of one listening school.”
