Neil graduated university in 2013 with a BA in Primary Education. He had read copious amounts on learning styles and was aware of every educational themed pyramid there was. 6 months later, after successfully gaining employment, he was asked to leave his first job as an NQT because spending his time looking at students’ learning styles and applying pyramids did little to help the students learn. After 6 years (and much reflecting and read) he now works for the Woodland Academy Trust as a Lead Teacher making research-based practices accessible for teachers across the trust to use in the classroom to improve students’ learning and is passionate about curriculum design.
