2 Sep 2020
Tom is the Director of Research and Development at a trust of schools in north east England where he teaches science. His role includes leading a Research School, which supports teachers and school leaders beyond the trust to develop evidence-informed practice.
Previously he held multiple roles at the Education Endowment Foundation, which included appraising potential research projects and supporting their successful delivery.
He is interested in how evidence can inform practitioners and policymakers. This hinges on high quality research evidence, which is why he is excited to sit on the BERA College of Reviewers.
