Phil Beadle is a sometimes well thought of British educator who has authored ten book on teaching and learning. He is the editor of the How to Teach series, and has written for the Times, the Guardian, The Independent on Sunday and the Telegraph (though he is ashamed of this last one). His series of columns for Education Guardian ran for nine years before being cancelled due to bad behaviour. He is a former UK teacher of the year with 20 years experience of achieving transformational results with students from challenging areas, and is the educational speaker that other educational speakers do not bunk. And he’s been on telly a bit, but so has Ainsley Harriot.
