Lead Consultant, Mark Salter, is very much a ‘hands on’ practitioner who focuses on realistic and effective solutions.
Mark worked for over 20 years as a Physical Education Teacher in Nottinghamshire. This included leading three Secondary Departments and as part of a Senior Management Team. For much of this time he led training and CPD activities for the Advisory and Inspection Service (AIS)across all educational phases, ultimately joining the AIS as a Teaching and Learning Consultant in 2003 working in all subjects.
Since leaving full time teaching Mark has worked as a Local Authority Consultant and then as an Independent Trainer and Consultant both in education and in business. He has operated across England, and in Wales and Scotland. He recently extended his remit to work as an International Associate for Creative Education in Malta and for Dragonfly Training in Turkey and Jersey.

Depending on your specific requirements, On The Mark Learning has a network of education professionals to draw upon to ensure your specific development needs are met.
Kate Parker-Randall, Headteacher, Bridlington School
Mark delivered exactly what we asked for: a range of extremely usable differentiation strategies for both more able and for pupils with SEND students. The session was interactive, and, staff from NQTs to experienced teachers, all gained a fresh insight into how to engage students whilst maximising challenge and progress. We were provided with a whole range of practical strategies that we will be able to cherry pick from. The hands on approach meant that all staff were fully engaged throughout.
Amanda Ilhan, Deputy Headteacher, The British International School, Istanbul:
Mark was just what we needed. He embedded theory of how we can improve from good to great teachers, using really practical, new ideas for the teachers to try out in their classrooms. He was a pleasure to work with.
