Victoria Bagnall
Victoria is a co-founder and director of THE CODE.Victoria is a qualified teacher and career SEN tutor who has struggled with the challenges of being dyslexic her whole life.  Victoria passionately believes it is the role of educators to help children to realise their potential and ignite a growth mindset outlook on life. In her career as an SEN tutor and more recently as Managing Director of Connections in Mind: Executive Function Coaching UK, Victoria has met scores of young people who are disillusioned by the school system and have lost their interest in learning.  Victoria believes that with the right support these children can be re-engaged in education and can reach their potential academically and personally. She is also believes that there are some key skills, such as writing, exam technique and effective revision which are rarely touched on, if at all in schools. In Victoria’s opinion these competencies hold the key to success in the current academic environment.  She has developed some innovative and easily understandable approaches to demystifying these skills which form the basis of the work we do at THE CODE.
