School Stories inspired by When the Adults Change
When the Adults Change


When The Adults Change embeds the principles of relational practice into schools using coaching, training, keynotes, book clubs and individual study online. Our solutions are bespoke, personalised and extremely successful.

The solution to children’s behaviour lies within the behaviour of adults and when the adults put relationships at the heart of all they do in their classrooms, schools can change their cultures and transform their teaching practice.

We are constantly oversubscribed and for live training have a waiting list system. If you would like to work with the team please contact Jill on
