Mervyn Wakefield is a freelance educational consultant and trainer who is probably the UK’s leading expert in curriculum organisation and timetabling. He taught in secondary schools in this country and abroad for 16 years before becoming an LEA inspector in the north-west.  He has also had 10 years experience as an Ofsted Inspector working in both primary and secondary schools.


Mervyn began timetabling in the early ‘70s and has used a wide variety of manual and computer systems for constructing school timetables.  He has been directing timetabling courses for over 20 years for a variety of different educational organisations and leading CPD providers.  As a consultant, Mervyn is regularly called into schools as a troubleshooter in timetabling, and last ‘season’ he constructed the timetable for three comprehensives and worked alongside the timetabler in two others in the UK and one in S E Asia.
