“I have seen first-hand the impact of training delivered by Insia, staff have left training invigorated and ready to apply strategies in the classroom.  The children in my school can talk clearly and confidently about all the Growth Mindset work that we have done and that is down to the guidance given to us by Insia.  The year 6 transition project delivered by Insia and her colleague was a massive help to some of our anxious Year 6 children last year.
Insia has been an exemplary professional coach whose insight and direction are always on target. She has been a vital resource in ensuring that the children in my school receive the best teaching and learning that they deserve. Her counselling sessions with one of my year 6 girls this year have resulted in her smiling again.”

“The Pioneers Conference aims to help support the progression of Pakistani and Bangladeshi girls into Higher Education. Insia instantly stood out to us as a potential role model for our students because of her impressive achievements and commitment to social mobility. She delivered a powerful presentation to the Conference attendees on the personal and professional journey she has made to overcome certain barriers and achieve her goals. Her enthusiasm, passion and energy was truly inspirational and had a profound effect on the students – so much so, that one of the students spoke about having butterflies after her presentation! Furthermore, Insia’s warm and professional manner meant that she was an absolute pleasure to work with at every stage of the Conference, and we are grateful to her for all of her help in making the event a success!”

“Insia has been inspirational in her work with our students. They are motivated by her because they believe that she really cares about them and wants them to succeed; they recognise the lengths she will go to support their development. As the Principal of the school, I think that they are absolutely right in their assessment!”

– Claire Morrell- Principal, Abbeyfield School

“I’ve known and worked alongside Insia for several years and would describe her as simply ‘awesome.’ She is well organised, delivers with passion and keeps to her word. I’ve seen both adults and students alike respond very well. We’ve worked in partnership for a number of years and will continue to do so.”

“For the last 2 years I’ve been working towards becoming a Police Officer, gaining experience, volunteering and developing my skills. I thought I was on the right path, then out of nowhere something changed and I suddenly needed to have a degree to pursue my dream job. As an adult there isn’t a lot of support when it comes to career progression, personal development or university applications. But that is what I desperately needed! Insia at the ‘Power to Be’ provided me with personal 1:1 mentoring to build my resilience, help me to consider the next steps and fully support me along the journey. From the very steps of applying for universities, writing my personal statement and deciding what the best option was for me, I felt she gave me the power to turn my future around for the better. Insia is still supporting me through my journey now that I have been given my unconditional offer to the University of East London, she has been positive, helpful and most importantly she has listened and given me the opportunity to be the best I can be as well as show my university who I can be. I honestly feel I would not have gotten to university with Insia and her support. I cannot recommend her enough for the time, energy and pure passion she has brought into my life! Thank you.”

-Jeremy Claydon – Student

“Insia’s presentation on British values was insightful and stimulating. Her delivery style is informal but polished and she was able to make all of the topics broached highly relevant to our students. I would recommend Insia for any school looking to explore British values in more depth.”

– C.Desvaux – Head of PSHE, Concord College

“Insia is an excellent public speaker. She has successfully delivered sessions to staff, children and parents at Millway Primary. Her sessions are always engaging, professional and inspirational!”
