Event description

Description

Phil Beadle is an award winning teacher, an award winning broadcaster, education consultant, teacher trainer, public speaker, author and broadsheet columnist.

After a successful series of workshops in Sydney, Adelaide and Mount Gambier in 2017, Phil returns to Australia to share his expertise in metacognition, literacy and behavior management. A highly engaging, interactive and often humorous day, ‘Metacognition CPD' draws on his twenty years of experience working in challenging environments and asks the question whether the techniques learnt in such schools can be applied in more mainstream or elevated climes.

Metacognition CPD – Many teachers were surprised when Professor Hattie’s tables of effect size concluded that metacognitive approaches were, in fact, both extremely effective and cheaply implemented. But what are these? And what is Metacognition? Phil has written the only serious work by a British teacher on this area, has read vast reams of research on Metacognition and has examined and assessed the efficacy of the strategies that Hattie recommends. The issue with work on Metacognition is that it has always been the province of glib learning-to-learn programmes when, in fact, it is a rather more complex academic field. This twilight course gives teachers and parents deeper understanding and access to strategies that will improve the ability of their children to perform better at school and in life.




Meet Phil Beadle

Best known in Australia for his role in the television series ‘The Unteachables’ which aired primetime on ABC1 and for which he won a Royal Television Society Award for being the best on-screen newcomer that year, Phil Beadle has a long history of delivering transformational English results in schools in challenging circumstances. Schools and academies he has worked in have become the most improved school in the country, had the highest contextual value added scores in London and been the most improved school/academy in their borough time and time again. He is a former winner in the United Kingdom Secondary Teacher of the Year Award in the National Teaching Awards and the winner of the London Secondary Teacher of the Year in the same year.

As a consultant, he is expert in literacy and in behaviour management, and is a vastly experienced teacher trainer, as well as being the education speaker that other speakers don’t bunk. Responses to the training he provides are uniformly transcendant and he has been described on many occasions as “The most inspiring speaker ever”. He has written for every broadsheet newspaper in the UK, most memorably as an education columnist for the Guardian for ten years during which time he was nominated for a European Commission Award for the promotion of equality in journalism.

He has written nine books on teaching and learning with an international reach and has worked in Australia, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and the USA.

His programmes for Teachers’ TV are used in universities across the English speaking world and include three of the forty most popular programmes in the channel’s run. He has won a further Royal Televison Society Award for the most educational impact in primetime schedule for ‘Can’t Read, Can’t Write’, and has appeared on Newsnight, the Today Programme, Woman’s Hour and Start the Week.
