Meet the Founder

My name is Glynis Frater and I’ve been developing CPD linked to education policy for many years. My areas of expertise are coaching, teaching and curriculum design as part of whole school improvement and change.

As lead trainer for the key skills support program in England and Wales I have a wealth of experience in the embedding of literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum.

Until 2010 I was Programme Director of a high profile government funded coaching program that created a whole organisation CDP model aiming to embed good practice and high quality training across the organisation.

I believe passionately that great teachers have a lasting impact.

The key learning experiences from this course was developing my understanding of the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how the impact of coaching can have a positive result on establishing learning cultures and attitudes within my school. The venue was great and the course was really engaging and enjoyable for all.

The team at Learning Cultures that design and deliver the courses and programmes that we offer are all experienced education specialists who have worked in senior leadership positions in schools and colleges in the UK and internationally. We work closely with the Association for Coaching and several universities and teacher training providers to ensure that we are as up to date as we can possibly be in terms of policy and research. 

We always provide certificates of attendance for all our courses, programmes and in school INSET events. These will provide proof of CPD undertaken and the hours of study allocated to the course you have attended. 

We offer a second delegate rate of £50 discount on the course fee. We can also offer discounts where several staff want to attend a course of a number of courses. This is on a discretionary basis and will depend on availability.

We provide everything electronically so that delegates can continue to use the materials for their own professional development and share and cascade their learning with others. For some of our courses the materials are stored on a virtual platform that can be accessed after the event for ease of use.

There is no charge if you cancel the booking up to 7 days before the course is taking place, within seven days we will charge the full fee. We are sometimes prepared to offer the opportunity to join the next course if there are places available for a cancellation fee of £50.00 + VAT.

There is a choice of payment methods, either invoice, credit card or debit card payment or payment through PayPal. Your booking will be secure with any of these payment methods. However, we do require payment of the invoice on our terms of 7 days from placing the booking or immediately if the course is taking place within a period of 7 days.
