The Learning Renaissance

I Did. You Can: The Phil Crompton Interviews


I was both flattered and inspired to be asked by my old friend, Phil Crompton to take part in his series of interviews with people he considered to be ‘movers and shakers’ who might provide inspiration and aspiration for young people. 

To be honest, having embarked on a linear career in education, I considered that my latter career had looked something like a car crash. Phil applied a different lens to it and saw it as resilience and resourcefulness which won out through setbacks. 

Having reflected on the interview process, I looked at some of the other interviewees. We all come from different backgrounds. All have had their own battles and adversities to fight and many focussed on the importance of a mentor in the critical teenage ways when they were finding their feet and preparing for adult life. 

Phil has now brought the series together in a brochure format and I suggest you access it if you want to help to support your pupils through the turbulent teenage years when so much is at stake for the future.

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
