The Expert Edits: The best conversations in education


To mark the launch of Ambition Institute, we put together three downloadable journals filled with the best conversations in education.   

We called these journals, ‘The Expert Edits’. 

A collection of the latest thinking around teaching and school leadership, the Edits have been curated for you by our experts; Tom Rees Executive Director of School Leadership, Marie Hamer Executive Director of Learning Design and Teaching, and Sir David Carter Executive Director of System Leadership. 

Each share a selection of their favourite articles 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? 
  • How to implement school improvement?  
  • What defines system leadership?  

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