New secondary school classroom teachers are under a lot of pressure to learn how to deliver outstanding lessons from the moment they start initial teacher training. Sophi is a platform for self-reflection and a community network, which supports new teachers to learn what works for them, faster.
Unlike existing methods for self-reflection, and support networks, Sophi is light and critical. It focusses planning around the needs each new teacher has with teaching and learning. And it helps to utilise the expertise of many more people within a new teachers professional community.

Some values I have as a service designer
Break boundaries, not doors
Work with others to make an impact
It's more complicated than you think
Don't wait to be told what to do
Respect other people's opinions
Test what makes sense
If they don't understand, you don't make sense
Ask for forgiveness, not permission
Listen first, then speak
It's about outcomes, not outputs
