Presenter Profile


Although Ian Taylor has been doing amazing work around the country helping schools improve at a departmental and middle management level, it is his work as a maths teacher that brought him to national attention. And we are not talking any ordinary maths teacher either which, when you spend time working wit Ian, you will soon come to understand.

Ian enjoyed a meteoric rise from his first teaching job in one of Middlesbrough’s – ergo one of the UK’s – toughest schools to leading a team of 22 maths departments across a cluster of challenging schools via AST status and a growing reputation nationally for helping all teachers be even better at what they do.

He is an energetic charismatic speaker, eminently practical not only with a clear understanding of school processes and structures but also a point blank refusal to let those structures inhibit teachers from creating innovative, engaging and highly effective lessons to bring the best out of all children.

And by all children, we mean all children - from the disaffected underachiever to the troublesome school refuser to the child who just finds it too hard.
