Continuous Learning Advisor
David has been a secondary school headteacher (14 years), a founding Director at the National College for School Leadership (6 years) and a Senior Associate at Innovation Unit (16 years) working predominantly within the education and social care portfolio. He has supported large and small-scale innovation programmes, both in the UK and internationally.
For three years he supported the design and implementation of New York’s iZone 360 programme. He coached extensively on the DFE’s Innovation in Children’s Social Care programme from 2015 to 2021 and was the coach for the second phase of the House Project. For ten years he supported the Global Educational Leaders Programme, and he has worked on system change programmes in America, Australia and South Africa – always with an emphasis on enhancing opportunities for the less well served.
David supports us to develop the work we do with stake holders and new local authorities to ensure that partnership working is strong from the very beginning.
