We’d like to thank Elizabeth for her boldness, thoroughness, and attention to detail in supporting the cultural paradigm shift which now exists in our school.

Robert O'Brien, Principal, Blanchelande College, Guernsey

Elizabeth offers a personal and approachable service and helped our staff to reflect on the importance of inquiry, information literacy and the role that a library could play in delivering the curriculum; particularly valuable was her introduction to the FOSIL framework. With her guidance, we now have a library and library provision that we're immensely proud of. Blanchelande College is very grateful and highly recommend Elizabeth's input.

What Trainees Say

Thank you so much for these excellent sessions, I feel reinvigorated and am really excited to learn more about FOSIL, and love the whole idea of focusing on reading for learning. What you say makes total sense on so many levels

"[Today's training] was a fantastic use of my time and really informative. My role here is completely new, so to be able to offer to introduce this kind of learning/research skills is amazing. The support through the use of frameworks was great and being able to take a brief look at the kind of thing you can apply in lessons was invaluable”.

"I would recommend it to all School Librarians as a way of thinking about expanding our job role or advertising exactly what we are capable of as a profession. This training gives you the confidence and vocabulary to promote our services to teachers".
