‘I am delighted to offer a testimonial in respect of the
excellent services provided to Liverpool schools by Peter Greenhalgh
from October 2010 – May 2011… The programme was
well received by all delegates with all evaluations indicating
a very high level of satisfaction with the quality of training
received. Six months on from the conclusion of the training,
whenever I meet any of the delegates they always remark on the
impact that the training has been making in their schools and
express gratitude for having been given the opportunity to take
part in such a high quality CPD programme. I can highly recommend
Peter’s training and would have no hesitation in making

years ago we embarked on a programme to develop teachers' practice
across the school by establishing a Coaching programme through
our T&L Group. We wanted colleagues to focus on delivering
Outstanding Learning Experiences for all pupils. Having had
a recommendation for Pam Scott from colleagues in another authority,
we invited Pam to work with us.
skills and expertise in coaching are excellent and colleagues
who worked with Pam quickly reinforced this as they found her
approach very supportive and empowering of them in the development
of their own classroom practice. I have commended Pam and her

Partnerships was a national DFES and DCMS initiative funded
by Arts Council England born out of the All our Futures: Creativity,
Culture and Education Report, May 1999. The programme’s
remit was to stimulate whole school change and encourage creative
teaching and learning in classrooms through sustainable partnerships
with creative and cultural professionals. This ambitious, transformative
programme worked in over 500 schools in thirty-six areas of
high deprivation across England. Latterly it has changed its
modus operandi and is called ‘Curious Minds’.
Partnerships Merseyside (CPM) works with primary and secondary
schools across Merseyside and the work is proving to be a success
both nationally and locally frequently being cited in Ofsted
inspection reports as an influence on creative teaching and
learning. Many teachers have reported a new found passion for
their work and most importantly the children involved in the
programme are enjoying learning and feeling more motivated and
inspired to achieve. Peter Greenhalgh has played a central role
in the development of CPM and without him the success outlined
above would not have been possible.
feedback from the participants, head teachers and creative organisations
has been of resounding excellence. Peter has a natural talent
to reach people of all levels and facilitates realistic solutions
to the challenges that schools and creative/cultural organisations
Peter always involves the participants fully in the programme
and this has increased their own confidence levels to take risks
within the classrooms, enabling young people to develop as independent
and creative learners.
national status that Creative Partnerships has achieved could
not have been achieved without Peter’s professional expertise
and creative talent. He has provided CPM with a powerful, focused
and inspirational tool for change that has genuinely captured
the imagination of children, parents, teachers, creative professionals
and communities. I would not hesitate in recommending him very
highly to any organisation/school.”
