Hannah Jones: Senior Associate
Hannah has extensive experience in the strategic national integration of ICT in learning. She has led several of the UK’s largest leadership programmes at the National College for School Leadership (NCSL), including the highly successful Strategic Leadership of ICT (SLICT) and Building Schools for the Future programmes.
During her time at NCSL, Hannah initiated, designed and delivered high quality leadership programmes for over 15,000 school leaders. External evaluations of these programmes were extremely positive with Ofsted identifying the programmes as a strong agent for change in teaching and learning practices and for leadership and management.
“Hannah provided dynamic leadership of the Building Schools for the Future and Strategic Leadership of ICT at the National College for School Leadership. She led high performing teams in developing outstanding professional development programmes for school leaders, overseeing their delivery and ensuring strong quality control across a range of providers. She has an excellent understanding of the challenges of leadership and change management in schools and how to tackle these successfully. I am always impressed with her grasp of the strategic ICT issues and her ability to develop training and guidance materials that supported schools in addressing these."
