  • Netballs annual Goalden Globe Awards

    Goalden Globe netball awardsIt’s that time of year again! It’s time to recognise the superheroes who make our sport what it is!!  As you know, the delivery of netball relies on an army of volunteers – from the club administrators and committee members who keep our clubs and leagues running to the coaches and umpires out each week leading sessions and matches. It’s easy to see that without the hard work and huge amount of time that these amazing folk give up, netball simply wouldn’t happen. So it’s time to say thank you!

    What people say

    The CD Wheel can be used in many ways from evidencing impact, an online learning platform, monitoring teacher professional standards, to a performance management tool in HR. It really does accelerate learning in every organisation, but just don’t take our word for it. Here are words from some of the people we are working with:

    “The best aspects are the logical approach;
    the coverage is clear so you know everything is there that needs to be done and also the ability to save evidence and view how the Wheel has progressed over time. A great way to see the subject moving forward through leadership.”

    Sam Bacon, Assistant Headteacher, St Andrew’s C of E Primary School, Horsham

    For us, this form of assessment is not only the most advanced way we have discovered so far but it is also far and away the best.
    The very nature of sports coaching is a visual and interactive arena and so for us to be able to define expectations, targets and achievements through a medium such as this, makes for a more accurate, engaged and reflective report for our coaches.”

    Gary Laybourne, Training and Development Manager, Greenhouse

    “You could tell right away that the people who work for Create Development really have a passion for what they do.
    This is reflected in the quality of services you have delivered. The leadership wheel has been received by students and teachers positively, with teachers seeing the potential of the wheel being used in many different aspects of the curriculum.”

    Karen Winch, Active Young People Department, Senior Officer, Bridgend Borough Council

    “As a 1:1 iPad school the new FUNS wheel is a fantastic tool which will allow our students to easily view the next challenge and practise at any time – break, lunch and weekends.
    The ability to upload videos of each stage provides us with quality assessment evidence.”

    Stephen Munnery, Physical Education, The International School @ ParkCity, Kuala Lumpur

    “We were looking at ways of empowering pupils to drive their own learning in Physical Education.
    The CD Wheel aligned with the Raising the Bar resource have already impacted on pupils feeling more successful in PE without the previous “peaks and troughs” of assessment focused on ability in a particular sport.  Our curriculum remains sport driven but the shift in our assessment focus has meant pupils are fully aware of their current strengths and exactly what they need to do to improve.”

    Dan Tree, Head of PE & Sport, Park House School & Sports College
