7 Areas for action
Facilitated self evaluation
The 7 Areas for Action© is Consilium Education’s Framework shaping all our facilitation, advice and training. As we work with schools we encourage all staff, academic and non-academic, to consider how action in key areas impacts on student learning.
THE 7 AREAS FOR ACTION FRAMEWORK
During a critical friendship vist, we are able to quickly assess strengths and weaknesses across the following areas of action:
- Vision, Mission, & Strategy
- Learning, inclusion & admissions
- Leadership & organisational structure
- Staff & Training
- Campus, security & safety
- School community & partnerships
- Marketing, finance & resources
The process consists of a short pre-visit survey, requiring “yes / no” answers to a a series of questions across the 7 Areas, the analysis of key documentation, a two or three day visit to the school and a series of facilitated meetings with key stake holders during the visit. We offer immediate initial verbal feedback, followed by a written report analysing strengths and weaknesses within two working weeks of the visit.
We think that using the 7 Areas for Action© is especially important to ensure a comprehensive approach to
- strategic planning
- preparation for school accreditation and inspection
