*Stuart McLaughlin, The Brittons Academy Essex:
"Shaf Cangil came as a consultant to The Brittons Academy when we desperately needed someone to organise our Year 11 students to finish off their coursework for the OCR National ICT qualification. She applied her management system to identify each students individual needs and then provided staff with first class support. Her technique enabled staff to map and monitor every student's work against the specification and then direct them to what was needed to complete the course. Thanks to her support, a significant number have achieved a pass or merit on the full course."
*Danielle Mercury-Wilson Student:
As a result of Mrs Cangils coming to help us I am now confident that I will achieve the full grade of Merit." She did.
30 participants, 3 years work, organised & ordered in less than 15 days.
All students entered passed. Moderating OCR officer officially reported that the coursework was excellently organised.

Director of Alomental Ltd. Educational assets, Hardback and electronic. Author of 'Agile/Scrum in Schools' Freestyle projects for the classroom "We can only succeed if we recognise that education is a dynamic human system, not a mechanical one. Successful school administration is a matter of fostering a helpful climate rather than "command and control" Sir Ken Robinson. In 2010 I created 2 'freestyle' projects that later I found mapped to industry techniques called AGILE. These projects have certain aspects of industry AGILE/SCRUM techniques, enough to get pupils used to working in a free-fall chaotic environment, not to panic, to pull order from it, to find direction and structure, build products of value from nothing, co-ordinate effort and teamwork, to utilise every skill they can to achieve objectives and make end products fit for purpose within a timescale. Inside: Flowol 3 based team activity for 2-4 pupils, minimum of 2 lessons plan and presumes exposure to Flowol & flowcharts for end of unit activity. Author of 'The Little Book of Teacher Tips': This little invaluable book covers areas of teaching and departmental management that rarely get mentioned in training like; Due Dilligence, Resources, Curriculum Timelines, Marksheets and levels. All addressed in an informal practical style, tips and techniques gained over 6 years teaching in the UK are shared. Industry management techniques [Agile/Scrum] are used to describe the validity of the tips.
