Professor of Leadership and Innovation, UCL

My interests include system reform and system leadership, school leadership and improvement and the nature and impact of evidence based practice.

Before joining the IOE I was Acting Executive Director - Leadership Development and Director - Research and Development at the National College for Teaching and Leadership (formerly the National College for School Leadership) for seven years.

Before joining the College I worked at the Design Council, the Campaign for Learning and the Cabinet Office, and I taught in Brazil, China and the UK.

From 2005-2006 I was Special Advisor to the Education and Skills Select Committee.
