Most recently, his increasing interest in the fine detail of teacher improvement led to him taking responsibility for continuing professional development within his school and teacher-training with Teach for Sweden. His current role involves researching teaching to help improve Teach First’s effectiveness. He blogs regularly at improvingteaching.co.uk and tweets sporadically as @hfletcherwood.
