"I always keep the students at the heart of my thinking when working with leaders and teachers."

Julia Scott

PLD Consultant - Wellington office

Based in our Wellington office, Julia works with schools in the following areas:

  • Coaching and mentoring leaders and teachers
  • Effective classroom learning strategies underpinned by research
  • Supporting senior and middle leaders to lead learning by building strong understandings of formative assessment practice
  • Connecting appraisal with teaching and learning

Julia works with primary and secondary schools in the areas of leadership and assessment. Her expertise comes from extensive senior leadership experience in a number of New Zealand schools and, since 2003, her work as an educational facilitator in the areas of leadership, curriculum and assessment in NZ and overseas.

She has extensive knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning across the curriculum and is skilled in sharing practical formative assessment strategies with teachers to improve student engagement and achievement.

Her knowledge and flexibility ensure that she is skilful at using a variety of approaches to support leaders to deal with the complex issues they face in schools.

Julia has recently moved to Wellington. She loves reading, cooking and making her own jewellery.

Here are some schools that Julia has worked with recently:

  • Linton Country School
  • Cardinal McKeefry School
  • Porirua College
  • Tararua College


"It has been fantastic working with Julia this year. Her friendly attitude puts people at ease, making it easy to discuss all aspects of learning and development with her. Julia is always available to answer questions, help develop ideas and encourages teachers she works with to continue learning."


"Julia has been a great support to our school. She has been working with us in the area of literacy. Julia has given us tools to reflect on our practice and readings to show us how we can improve. Her positive attitude and diverse ways of teaching has made our professional development a pleasure. We have put many of her ideas into practice, and we can already see some of our students trying hard to achieve their goals. Learning is definitely accelerating. "
