The Expert Edits: The best conversations in education

As part of our commitment to getting better through sharing expertise and drawing on the best available evidence, we have put together free, downloadable journals filled with the best conversations in education. We call these journals, ‘Expert Edit’. 

Curated by our experts, the Edits are a collection of the latest thinking around teaching and school leadership. Each expert shares a selection of the latest and best-informed content from a range of different authors, providing an analysis of their ideas and some reflective prompts so that you can apply them in your own setting.  

They include questions like: 

  • How can we create a world-class education system?  
  • What is leadership success dependent on? 
  • What makes a great curriculum?
  • How to implement school improvement?  
  • What defines system leadership?  
  • How do you get the best out of your ECTs?

Easy to download and digest, we hope the Expert Edit will pique your interest, inform your practice and help you to keep getting better.
