Becoming an effective teacher takes years of experience. Lucky for you, our podcast hosts have seen enough ‘aha!’ moments throughout their education careers to know which ideas are useful (and which should be avoided). Join Andy, Emily and Adam as they unpack current pedagogical thinking, chat about their education obsessions and share invaluable teaching tips for the classroom and at home. From big questions like, where does the inspiration to learn come from? To smaller ones like, which writing tool is better: pencils or pens? Tune in to learn more than you ever thought you needed to know about learning.
The school of school podcast is presented by:
Andy was one of the first to bring maths mastery to the UK as the founder and CEO of the independent publisher: Maths — No Problem! Since then, he’s continued to create innovative education products as Chairman of Fig Leaf Group. He’s won more than a few awards, helped schools all over the world raise attainment levels, and continues to build an inclusive, supportive education community.
With nearly 20 years of education experience, Emily has a knack for creating wildly successful learning content. Her past work includes publishers like Oxford University Press, Pearson and Collins Education. Currently, you’ll find her dreaming and scheming in her role as Head of Publishing at Fig Leaf Group.
In a past life, Adam was a headteacher, and the first Primary Maths Specialist Leader in Education in the UK. He led the NW1 Maths Hub’s delivery of NCETM’s Professional Development Lead Support Programme before taking on his current role of Maths Subject Specialist at Maths — No Problem!
