Hutton Consulting is an Australian based international educational consultancy, driven by a desire to re-imagine new ways of ‘doing education’. 

We have developed valued insights into how education needs to adapt to meet the current and future learning needs of students.

Our growing team of creative senior educators have established a reputation for providing tailored, strategic consultancy and leadership search support to schools. We are passionate about providing the right career guidance for emerging leaders and developing trusted and sustained relationships with school executive teams and human resource departments across all sectors.

Schools are highly complex and nuanced environments. We work collaboratively with leadership teams to achieve the school’s mission and vision by co-developing practical, step by step implementation plans. We can also assist schools in assessing internal culture and co-creating a positive innovation mindset within the whole school community. 

This change process can often be accelerated and strengthened by placing skilled change-maker leaders in key positions within schools, often staged over a number of years. Our executive search team has an extensive database of pre-screened, up-and-coming and established leaders keen to make an impact within your schools. 

Our agility and flexibility, alongside our highly relational approach, means we are well positioned to tailor strategies to your needs.
