· 'A man who challenged everyone of us by touching raw nerves, challenging perceptions about self, knowledge, cultural stereotypes, through the use of language in the name of literacy and raising achievement and developing understanding. What more can I say?'
(Teacher, Grieg City Academy 2012).
· 'I've never had a teacher who likes me as much as you do'
(Steph, Year 11 Student, Oasis Academy Brightstowe 2012).

Phil Beadle is an English teacher, education consultant, author, teacher trainer and speaker. As a teacher he has a history of achieving transformational results with students from schools in working class areas. Every school or academy that he works with (as a very much 'hands-on' consultant) reports substantial improvements in GCSE results in English - between 15 and 30 percent from the previous year. As author of the highly acclaimed, influential and best selling 'How to Teach', which was awarded 10/10 by the TES, he is able to consult on the teaching and learning culture of a school and make incisive whole school recommendations in report form. A vastly experienced trainer, evaluations of his work are uniformly transcendent, and often include the phrase, "The best speaker I have ever heard".
