Since opening its Australasian office in 2011, Andrell Education Australasia has worked closely with schools and teachers to provide training and resources that have proven to successfully enhance teaching standards.
With over 40 years experience between them, Andrell would like to introduce consultants and head of Andrell Education Australasia; Samantha Taylor and Wendy Allder. Sammy and Wendy are determined to share their excitement, passion and success of Big Write and VCOP. Having both adapted, then used the Big Write and VCOP program successfully in their classrooms, they can offer other teachers the most accurate and effective advice, feedback and support.
Sammy and Wendy have attended conferences and training in the UK with both Ros and her colleagues on all the Andrell programs. Initially, they spent the best part of a year working closely with Ros to adapt the Criterion Scale to be used directly in line with the Australian National Curriculum and have set up the first Australian pilot school, Pearcedale Primary School, in Melbourne’s outer South East. A database of VCOP schools is now being created all over Australasia.
