About

Joyful Education was founded by Stefanie Wilkinson and Lou Mycroft in the summer of 2020, following the momentum experienced in Covid-lockdown around the need for change in education. It is the enterprise arm of #JoyFE, the non-profit movement and constellation.

Culture Change – Community – Communication

We are education specialists creating communities and spaces for people to come together. We specialise in culture development and organisational change, with expertise in evidenced and practice based professional development and teaching and learning improvement. We are also specialists in coaching and mentoring and therefore strongly promote growth, personal development, and creating the conditions for people to flourish. Joyful Education champions teacher wellbeing and lead a national wellbeing initiative as well as providing a wellbeing package for schools and colleges through our network of partners.

Our many years’ experience in education, working within organisations and nationally, in leadership, management, pedagogy and governance, give us a broad view of what’s possible and we are not afraid to work towards a far horizon, no matter how big the challenge. Through Joyful Education’s sister project JoyFE – founded at the beginning of lockdown – we have demonstrated the benefits of values-led, anti-competitive approaches. We will ask you, ‘What do you stand for?’ and take that as our starting point, for working with you.

We stand for collaboration, growth and unity. We work with affirmative principles and find the joy in education, whilst not being afraid to call out what’s going wrong. Working with us means that everyone will be heard.
