Passionate about Learning

Our team

All of our team are required to have a sound pedagogical foundation and commitment to their own professional learning from which they can be responsive to a wide range of identified needs.

Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi Engari,
he toa takitini

My successes are not mine alone, they are ours – the greatest successes we will have are from working together


Our Directors

Naomi and Bronwyn are respected members of the education community in New Zealand and internationally recognised for their experience and commitment to relational leadership and connected learning. As founders of EDconnect they have built a team with both diverse and specialised expertise able to connect with and work alongside you. This means they can connect you with the right people who are responsive in working alongside you and tailoring support to meet your needs.

Connecting only the best

Our facilitators and associates are all highly skilled. We will be sure to find the right one to meet your needs. They are experienced coaches able to meet face-to-face or virtually as suits you best. The team are skilled designers and facilitators of workshops who are equally comfortable in the classroom, modelling high impact strategies with your teachers and learners. Using specific tools to determine where your needs are ensures that no two schools’ support looks the same.
