PEER and PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT
Diversitywise Educational Services offers on-demand access to an early-years and primary education specialist and academic.
We provide support that is independent, confidential, tailored to your specific needs and informed by Australian best practice and contemporary educational research.
A few of the many examples of where this service may be useful include:
A early years centre seeking to improve their responsiveness to a young person with diverse needs.
A beginning teacher seeking to develop diversity-informed curriculum resources for their class.
A teacher seeking advice regarding trauma-informed behaviour management strategies.
A school principal seeking to promote a culture of cultural sensitivity, inclusion and respect at their school and seeking tailored resources to assist with that.
How to book
The base cost of booking a consultation is $80+GST (payable by credit card or Paypal).
This fee provides for an initial phone call or Skype meeting of 30 minutes duration and a short follow-up email with advice regarding strategies and often links to resources. Where further support is needed, a quote for this work shall normally be provided.
We encourage a description of the issue to be included in the booking. Without listing any student names, this should set out the context to the issue for which support is being sought. This will help ensure that you get the most value from our meeting with you (and in the event that we feel we are not the best organisation to respond to your query we can make a referral and arrange reimbursement.
On booking a session, you shall be sent an email confirming the booking and providing a web link that can be used if needed for rescheduling or cancellations. Tax invoices are issued at the conclusion of each session (or period of support). Note that costs will often be be tax-deductible depending on your particular circumstances.
Rescheduling and Cancellations
We understand that teachers, Principals and Centre administrators often have very busy working lives.
Prior to the day they are scheduled, bookings can be rescheduled or cancelled at no charge.
On the day they are scheduled and prior to the scheduled start time, bookings can be rescheduled at no charge or cancelled for a 50% fee.
After the nominated start time, bookings can’t be cancelled, but if you are simply running late we will try and accommodate a late start.
