Innovation

NPW IS COMMITTED TO WORKING WITH YOU TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF CHILDREN. WE RECOGNISE THAT TO DO THIS, WE CANNOT SIMPLY PROVIDE THE SAME SERVICES YEAR IN YEAR OUT.

A NUMBER OF NEW PRODUCTS ARE COMING TO MARKET. THESE ARE CREATED AND DEFINED IN CONJUNCTION WITH SCHOOLS. BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF SOME OF THE PRODUCTS WE ARE CURRENTLY PILOTING.

Marketing and Branding Consultancy

Schools may not be aware of how they or their staff are represented online. Traditionally the identity of schools was based on strong values, community and Ofsted reports. In the digital age of social media, your identity is driven by online opinion, search results and digital presence. We’re looking to find a solution, so schools can better manage these factors with the use of strategic marketing and branding.

Leadership and Management Development

With quality recruitment becoming tougher than ever, it is increasingly important to have a high staff retention rate. This requires clear career progression routes with quality training and development programmes. We are exploring ways in which we can work with schools to identify and develop leadership and managerial potential, and support staff in gaining the right level of knowledge, skills and ability to lead and manage teams, cultural change and organisational development.

Culture Change & Organisational Development

Understanding the prevailing culture, why it exists and what needs to change, often requires an independent and objective viewpoint. We’re exploring with partners how best to achieve sustainable change and organisational development.

Health & Safety Management System

Managing and understanding all health and safety requirements can be an arduous task. We are seeking a solution to have one place to record and report on process, ensuring greater compliance and reducing risks.

Senior Staff Recruitment

Recruitment and retention has become more difficult. In particular, teachers do not necessarily stay in the profession for the duration of their careers. This puts pressure on schools when appointing to senior posts due to the reduction in the quantity and quality of applications. Together with our partners in schools, we are working to find effective solutions for
recruitment, retention and succession planning.

Risk Management

Whilst schools are aware of the risks they may face, often they are managed in a fragmented way, and in many cases the lower priority risks are not dealt with, stirring up problems for the future. NPW is currently using an internal system to collectively manage, categorise and assess risks. We are able to transfer our success in reducing the impact of our risks to our clients.
