Clare Smale

Trainer, coach and author
I have managed and delivered a range of NLP, coaching,leadership and management development programmes in schools, local authorities and in private companies. I am a qualified and experienced coach and trainer, with clients including several councils, NHS and PCT Trusts, police and probation services and a wide range of private companies and charities.

Before creating inspired2learn in 2002, I taught and managed in three 11-18 comprehensive schools. I created and published the innovative Teaching Expertise magazine in 2003. 13 quarterly magazine issues were published before its sale in 2006 to Electric Word, achieving a final circulation of 6000 copies in the UK and overseas.

I am skilled in creating strategies for personal change through coaching and NLP techniques, particularly for senior and middle leaders and those aspiring to leadership posts. With over 1000 coaching hours, I am experienced in providing private life coaching as well as coaching in organisations.

My recent roles include being a National College for School Leadership Consultant and a Personal Leadership Coach for 50 Fast Track teachers in the west. I have been a judge for National Teaching Awards (West Panel) for six years.

I design, deliver and assess NLP programmes, CMI leadership and management programmes and ILM coaching awards. My particular interests are in helping leaders and managers to tackle the challenges associated with managing change and team working, with a focus on personal development and resilience.

I am involved in the Coach in Every City project (supported by the Knowledge to Action Foundation and Youth Coaching Academy UK) and I am the Youth Coach for Wells in Somerset. This is an exciting national initiative to give one school in every city the services of a life coach and to train the pupils in that school to provide peer coaching.
