About Discover Multiple Intelligences

MAW Education was set up in 1996 – http://www.maweducation.co.uk. Since then Margaret Warner has led inspections of schools and delivering Performance Management training in the UK, and trained teacher internationally in Qatar and India. On-site consultancy is supported by virtual/internet consultancy. This multiple intelligences website was set up in 2004 as a result of carrying out research and finding that many teachers were looking for information about Multiple Intelligences on the Internet. It is hoped that it will answer some of their questions and provide further information about education in its widest sense. Providing for the talents of pupils so that they can take a full part in life wherever they live, has long been the aim of MAW Education.

She has led and written up reports for over eighty primary school inspections as the Registered Inspector, in inner city, rural, very large and very small, high and low achieving schools across England. In secondary schools she has been responsible for inspecting the religious education departments in thirty-three secondary schools and has supported the Registered Inspector with pre- and post-inspection writing. She has inspected specific aspects of secondary schools such as ‘provision for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils’, ‘the quality of teaching’ and ‘the school’s partnership with parents and the community’.

Management experience: Margaret Warner was headteacher/principal of a Church of England primary (3-11 years) school for ten years in London’s developing Docklands area. (1979-1989) The school had a nursery class, and she set up a pre-school playgroup which parents could attend with their children as young as 18 months. Land adjoining the school was bought and a nature park designed and developed which was opened by the naturalist David Bellamy. The school is in an area surrounded by water – the disused docks and the River Thames – so an attractive detached brick building, housing a learners’ swimming pool was also built. Before leaving, she began to introduce the National Curriculum to the school. Three of her teachers were promoted to headships whilst she was at the school. Margaret Warner returned to college in 1990 to study for an MA in Education. She then became head of departments in a girls’ high school and in a large comprehensive school. Following that she set up the religious education department in a new secondary special school.  From 1994 to 2005 she inspected schools across England, leading primary teams for eight of those years. This involved planning inspections, managing teams and writing up inspection reports.
