Andrew Plant is the Director and Lead Coach at LCT.
I am a professional School Leadership and Teacher Coach and Trainer.
Work has primarily been over twenty years as a Teacher and eight years as a successful Head Teacher in Shropshire, working in the areas of mainstream education and independent SEN schools – with patience, forward thinking and the ability to listen being high on the list of learning!
The part of my career in education that I really enjoyed the most was actually sitting 1:1 with young people and colleagues, discussing their present state along with their futures and helping them to improve their lives by putting the past to one side and concentrating on the here and now and where they would like to be in the coming months and years. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make a career out of it and became a Coach.
Since starting the business I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Teach First - a charity working for equality of education in England and Wales. My role being one where I train and coach SLTs in schools to become coaches with their teaching staff, giving them the opportunity to implement a process which improves the quality of teaching and learning.
I have also had a large number of 1:1 clients, young and old, who have come to see me for coaching on issues such as their careers, relationships, the finding of their lost ‘mojo,’ work/life balance and numerous others. Please see the testimonials to appreciate the benefits that good coaching can bring.
As of 2019, I also work as the Education Representative on an Independent Fostering Panel.
