*Looking to book? Jo’s availability calendar is updated daily!*

Skills with Frills Education provide a unique service to schools within Yorkshire, offering cover for planned or last-minute teacher absence, including the option for bespoke learning opportunities and intervention for individuals, groups and classes.

Simply tell us what you’d like and our visiting teacher/super-duper skills specialist, Jo, will come in and work her magic. Prices are so reasonable, you’ll wonder why you didn’t book sooner!

If this sounds like something that your staff, students and school would benefit from, but you still need more convincing, read more about how everything works here. Itching to ask a question, discuss a bespoke package or looking to cover lessons with a fantastic wellbeing/life-skills experience? Contact us and we’ll be happy to help!

If you’re interested in teaching and learning, help yourself to some free resources for use within your classroom, and check out the Skills with Frills Blog. Here you’ll find a myriad of education-related plans, ideas and strategies, and maybe even the odd rant too! Hankering for more? Click here for Jo’s latest contribution to TES, based on supporting anxious students in the classroom; or try this one instead, discussing how mindfulness practice can support stressed-out educators in getting some much-needed headspace away from the classroom. Want more still? See Jo’s sister site, Anxious.Ambition.com, for daily blog posts specifically relating to anxiety, wellbeing and happiness. 

There’s never a dull moment here – but we enjoy every one! 


SUPER-DUPER SUPPLY ALTERNATIVE: I’m currently working throughout Primaries in Yorkshire, offering full-day learning experiences as an alternative to supply teaching. Day-long workshops currently include: Wellbeing Warriors; Mindfulness Masterclass; Team-tastic (Teamwork Day.)

MINDFULNESS WORKSHOPS: I also provide shorter Mindfulness-specific packages, such as 1.5 hour sessions per class, easily adapted to the needs of the school and a great addition to any healthy minds/bodies theme week.    

MINDFULNESS TRAINING FOR PARENTS: I do offer 1.5 hour parent-training sessions in Mindfulness for Developing Emotional Resilience with Children, including jam-packed resources for each participant, at the price of £25. Sessions so far have been held at local schools in the area. More coming soon in the 2018-19 school year – contact me if you’d like to see this in your area!

MINDFULNESS COACHING: I have a growing number of one-to-one Mindfulness Coaching clients, of various ages, in West Yorkshire. Contact me if you’re interested! 


MORE HIGH-QUALITY LEARNING EXPERIENCES: reasonably priced, skill-based and wellbeing-enriching learning days as a fantastic alternative to supply cover. This August, I completed training in CBT (APT Accreditation Level 2) and I’m currently looking for opportunities to incorporate this into the Skills with Frills curriculum! 

MINDFULNESS TRAINING FOR TEACHERS: training aimed at providing teachers with the skills, knowledge and confidence, to support mental health in the classroom without adding to their workload.

YOGA WITH MINDFULNESS: Following Yogakidz training, I’m underway with my final assignments and lessons, and hoping to be qualified by the end of July! I’ll be throwing this into Learning Experiences (because it’s amazing!) as well as offering Yoga/Mindfulness workshops!
