This new book by the founder of the Achievement for All charity, Sonia Blandford and researcher Catherine Knowles, is a practical guide to the implementation and development of the Achievement for All programme in your school. It includes case studies exemplifying successes from the two year pilot and the national roll out of the programme, and tips for not only setting it up in your school but also sustaining it. The Achievement for All programme is an evidence based whole-school strategy for raising the aspirations, access to learning and achievement of the most disadvantaged learners in any school setting, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, those in receipt of Free School Meals, Looked After Children and other vulnerable groups. The programme closely monitors the children's progress and provides support to prevent them from falling behind. Engaging parents through structured conversations is one of the key areas of focus; this integrated approach to raising aspirations, access and achievement allows for a strong common sense method when dealing with learning barriers such as bullying or poor social skills. This book is a must read for any school leader keen to ensure all of the vulnerable children and young people in their care develop the skills, interests and capabilities they need to become life long learners.

The organisation Achievement for All engaged in international projects in England, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, South Korea, the United States of America and Wales with the aim of raising the aspirations, access and achievements of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people. These projects were united in bringing Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) back into the classroom by focusing on the relationship between parents, leaders, teachers and wider professionals. Achievement for All in International Classrooms examines these projects, looking at the context of each and the research findings, before considering how this could enhance knowledge and understanding in other international settings. Sonia Blandford examines the policy implications needed to bring SEND into the classroom, understanding of the scale of the issue, moral purpose, belief, commitment, collaboration and determination, through evaluation, research and practice. She also considers what it takes to change practice, bringing Achievement for All and SEND into the classroom, looking in particular at the implications for: - Leadership - Teaching and learning - Parent and carer engagement - Wider outcomes and opportunities - Professional development for all staff Drawing on her wealth of experience and expertise, Blandford then makes recommendations on what it would take to introduce Achievement for All in policy to bring SEND into the classroom, with particular reference to changes at national, regional and school level, as well as parental and carer engagement and a desire to improve outcomes for all children and young people.

Ten years ago, when American management consultant Brett Wigdortz told his employers at McKinsey that he was leaving to "found an organisation designed to address educational disadvantage in Britain", they laughed. He was 28 years, with no experience of either public policy or teaching; he'd never led anything before, never managed anyone. And he thought he could put right the class-ridden injustices of the British education system. This is the story of how a tiny independent charity has succeeded against all odds. Having met nothing but resistance in its early years, Teach First is today Britain's largest employer of graduates. It receives over 7000 applications for 1000 teaching positions annually in the most challenging schools in the country. In this searingly honest account Brett shows how, through a combination of his McKinsey training and personal passion, he has turned a simple idea into a cultural revolution. He offers tips and advice based on everything he has learned along the way - How to write a business plan, How to hire the right team through to How to become a CEO with zero qualifications. This is a book about turning no into yes - inspiration for anyone else out there with a vision for change to go out and make it happen.

It is perhaps ironic that as the global financial crisis has, in some cases, led governments and institutions to pull back from and/or set more modest goals and associated funding around widening participation, there is an ever-growing sense that the ideals buttressing the widening participation movement are becoming more universally acknowledged by educators across the globe. That acknowledgement has translated into action on the ground via such means as policy formulation, strategic planning and target setting – each of which often reflects local contexts and manifests a regional ‘flavour’. There is also, however, an increasing realisation that there are commonalities in the challenges involved with national or regional initiatives to increase the participation of non-traditional groups in higher education and that the drivers of such initiatives – and ultimately the cohorts they target – stand to benefit considerably from an open exchange of ideas and sharing of experience. This book brings together current regional perspectives on widening participation as presented by prominent academics, researchers, policy-makers, and students from across the globe. It will create for policy-makers, institutions, and individuals interested in enabling access, a useful and informative resource that will introduce, formulate, shape and reinforce the ideas and aims of the World Congresses on widening access. As the contributors maintain, in an increasingly globalised market economy and in the face of recent seismic economic, political and social change around the world, it is imperative to both secure existing talent within our populations and uncover and nurture new sources of talent. The series of essays featured in this book will explore, anticipate, and highlight themes underpinning a global movement towards a step-change in thinking, strategies, and policies – one that places youth and students from around the world at its heart.

The Government's response is to back the majority of the Panel's conclusions and work on their recommendations has already begun. The report stated that elitism in the professions and a lack of focus on careers in schools mean that bright young people from middle class as well as lower income backgrounds are being shut out from professional jobs. The Panel chaired by Alan Milburn MP, concluded that without action to address Britain's closed shop mentality, tomorrow's generation of talented young people will miss out on a new wave of social mobility. There were over 80 recommendations in the final report with social mobility to be the top social policy priority. This response includes plans to raise aspirations by focusing on four factors that impact on people's life chances: the care and development of children in their early years, the quality of our schools, continued and high quality education and training post 16 and the skills our workforce.
