Our Collaborative Approach to Consulting

 

In addition to cross-school collaborations, CATDC partners with consultants and schools to create personalized professional development and ongoing support for independent school educators.

 

CATDC works closely with hundreds of educational professionals: whether teacher leaders from within our member schools or internationally known experts in the field. Through our consulting services you will be connected to just the right individual to meet your needs. Whether developing and delivering dynamic in-service professional development and retreats, or working across the year with several individuals, teams, or your entire faculty in ongoing transformational learning, CATDC consultants take a collaborative approach built upon a coaching model.

 

VISION

Understanding and supporting educator development has driven CATDC’s work for the past 20 years. Through structured, empathetic, and collaborative partnerships, CATDC consulting offers another impactful avenue for growth and positive change within independent schools.

TESTIMONIAL

topquote

CATDC adds such value in connecting member schools with creative, professional consultants who have been vetted by the CATDC team and, often, other member schools. Time is the most precious resource we have as a faculty, and so having an outstanding person to lead professional development makes such a difference. We are pleased with this new venture of the Collaborative and look forward to continuing to connect with great trainers in the future.

–Joe Harvey, Head of School, Mark Day School
