National and International Associates for
Educational Transformations

Educational Transformations Pty Ltd has established an association with two companies that strengthen our capacity in Australia, Europe and Latin America.





Brian Caldwell’s association with Jim Spinks continues in the linking of the work of Educational Transformations Pty Ltd and JM and M Spinks Consultants in Education. Brian and Jim co-authored the influential trilogy of books on self-managing schools (The Self-Managing School in 1988, Leading the Self-Managing School in 1992 and Beyond the Self-Managing School in 1998). They have worked together since 1984 in policy advice and leadership development on aspects of self-management in Australia, England, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Jim was principal of schools that provided the model for self-management before establishing JM and M Spinks Consultants in Education in 2000. He has undertaken research on the links between student learning needs and school resources and played an important role in the development of the new resource allocation model for government schools in Victoria. Senior Consultant with JM and M Spinks Consultants in Education is Marilyn Spinks. Marilyn’s earlier work as a school principal focused on the building of school-community relationships and innovation in efforts to achieve improved outcomes for students in disadvantaged settings. Marilyn was also involved in research that underpinned the new model for resource allocation in Victoria. Educational Transformations Pty Ltd and JM and M Spinks Consultants in education will continue their association in national and international consultancy.
