This week, we’ve got a fascinating chat with Hannah Wilson - a powerhouse in the UK education scene. Hannah has just kicked off her new role as Headteacher Designate of Aureus School, part of the GLF multi academy trust network of over 21 schools in the south of England. Aureus is a brand new school in Oxfordshire which starts in September this year, with a focus on STEAM and collaboration with the community. Hannah also takes on the role of regional director for the Oxfordshire hub and is actively recruiting for the school at the time of publishing this episode. Many of you will also know Hannah as the co-founder of WomenEd, a grass roots network aimed to empower women in the UK education scene which has now launched internationally and most recently in the US. You will also want to check out BAMEEd which launched this week with the aim at increasing diversity. Finally, Hannah’s previous role was as the Professional Learning Consultant Leader at Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance where she was responsible for the CPD needs of thousands of educators.
