About Us

Angie Wilcock is a highly regarded Australian expert and speaker on transitions in education.

As well as appearing on ‘Mornings with Kerrie-Anne’, the Today Show and numerous national and local radio programs, Angie has also delivered presentations as part of the Generation Next team to audiences across the country.

With a Bachelor of Arts degree from Sydney University, a Diploma in Education and a strong background in teaching,
Angie now works with teachers, parents and students across Australia in the area of transition to secondary school.

A mum of two sons, Angie's sessions are a mix of humour, anecdotes, information, real-life parenting and strategies to support families during this very critical phase of education and personal development.

Angie has delivered her positive message supporting successful adolescent transitions and middle years education at state and national conferences across Australia, and has worked directly with parents and students in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, NSW, Queensland and the ACT. She has also worked closely with low socio-economic school communities, providing parents with the powerful message that they can play an important role in their child's education, regardless of their own educational experiences.

She has had several articles on transition, middle years teaching and learning, boys and girls educaton, learning styles and coping strategies for secondary school published in national and state educational journals and on educational websites.

Her book, The Transition Tightrope, published by Routledge UK, was released in Australia, the UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand early 2013. It targets parents, teachers, school counsellors, year advisors - in fact anyone who lives or works with young people in this transition from the primary to secondary education phase. It was picked up in late 2013 by a Spanish publishing company to be translated into Spanish for wider international distribution.

She currently works with government, private, state and national parent organisations and not-for-profit organisations as facilitator and consultant. She is also an online advisor on parenting issues in education on the U.S website AllExperts.

Her company, High Hopes Educational Services (ABN 41 864 534 372) is based in Sydney, Australia.
