Phil Beadle Phil is not only as expert as it is possible to be in this area,having written for every broadsheet newspaper in the UK, but has a reputation forged over many years for making,as the Guardian wrote, ‘Even the grittiest parts of grammar sing.’
Since winning the UK Teacher of the Year award ten years ago, he has written eight best-selling books on teaching and learning, along with a column ‘On Teaching’ for The Guardian, and contributed to the TES, Teach Secondary, The Telegraph, The Times, The Independent and The Sydney Morning Herald.
He’s one of the best speakers I have heard and, in particular, offered practical strategies to improve teaching
and learning rather than just woolly exhortations to do better.
