Steve Gill spent 32 years teaching in Runcorn as Assistant Headteacher. During his time there he was the Lead Behaviour Professional within the school, attended regional National Strategy Meetings representing Halton, was a member of the Halton Project Board, and oversaw the Locality Working Pilot Group which brought together external services in key areas of Halton to support vulnerable students and families.
He was a Governor at The Bridge Pupil Referral Unit for many years, and held strategic responsibility for the school SEF and SIP.
Steve was fortunate to have had the responsibility for increasingly challenging areas within school settings – this included developing strategies for and leading inclusion in different settings, developing links with external agencies and businesses that supported students in school to achieve success.
During his 36 years in education Steve believes the most challenging role he has faced is in behaviour management. This allowed him to develop a drive and enthusiasm to improve students’ behaviour, attitudes to learning and hence their life chances. Part of this process was the necessity to change not only the student’s attitudes, but also that of staff.
Steve has always been an enthusiastic, self-confident teacher and this has enabled a rapport to be built effectively with students and colleagues allowing them to engage effectively in their learning. This continues to be the case in his role as an IQM Assessor and Ambassador.
