Event description

Description

Jaz Ampaw-Farr (@jazampawfarr) is passionate about the difference teachers make. Through celebration and provocation she uses the transformative power of her own story to motivate and inspire the true heroes of education - YOU!

Reading, writing and spelling were Jaz's tickets out of poverty. This experience led her into teaching, setting up her own literacy consultancy then becoming an advisor, international speaker, teaching and learning coach and a catalyst for change. She believes our main role in teaching is to be advocates for learners. Her book, Why1st Teaching, looks at reverse engineering her own mindset shift, pinpointing the part that teachers played. It provides a toolkit for schools to embed a resilience mindset in their learners that is adaptable to their own personal lives.

As a speaker Jaz’s enthusiasm is infectious and hugely motivating. Her background as a stand-up comedian, in-depth knowledge of her subject and commitment to empowering teachers guarantee Jaz’s sessions to be engaging, inspiring and resourceful.

You may recognise Jaz from the BBC spelling show, Hard Spell Abbey, which she worked on as educational advisor, writer and co-presenter. More recently she appeared as a candidate on The Apprentice. Fortunately she is more of an expert at delivering inspiring talks than selling lucky Chinese cats!
