Learning Pioneers provides practical, up-to-date learning opportunities tailored to your vision and values. We take collective efficacy seriously.

John Hattie’s meta-analysis in 2015 found that collective teacher efficacy has an effect size of 1.57. Since the average effect size is 0.4, this means that collective teacher efficacy can quadruple the typical effect on student achievement.

And collective efficacy is what we are all about…
“Collective efficacy (when the staff of a school believe they are capable of helping all students make excellent progress) is one of the most significant factors influencing student achievement”
James Nottingham

What if, together, we could...

  • Create a collaborative culture of teachers open to and enthused by educational research
  • Promote and strengthen positive learning dispositions amongst your staff
  • Create collaboratively learning opportunities for all staff, aligned with your school vision and values AND teacher interests
  • Create an expansive learning environment
  • Equip staff with the tools, information and resources they need to implement the most impactful and inspiring learning in their classrooms

What if…

Every teacher could be your best teacher -
enthusiastic, onboard, full of ideas, supportive of your shared vision

Driving your school’s vision forward can feel exhausting at times.

No-one tells you that it can be lonely at the front; it is stressful trying to balance protecting and enthusing your staff, onboarding stakeholders with your vision, juggling 20 jobs that weren’t even on your list at the beginning of your day! And that’s not to mention having to pivot during COVID! 

Where’s the time for the “good stuff”?! The reason you got into this job in the first place: To expand your vision, to impact on 100’s or 1000’s of lives, to have a positive impact on your community and beyond. 

We have found that by walking with you and firing up your vision with your staff and bringing out the best in them though our community and guidance that we can take some of this weight off your shoulders AND have a lasting impact on learning. Once your teachers are signed up to Learning Pioneers, the next thing you know, you will be walking into your teachers' classroom fully confident that the learning will be alive and the children will be buzzing from your teachers having taken the learning to the next level.

What is the value of instilling this kind of enthusiasm and confidence in your educators? What is this level of impact on children's learning worth?

Effective teacher learning involves*:


Sustained interactions and interventions 

(as opposed to individual training sessions)


Giving teachers choice

and influence over their professional development


Collaborative work

within a professional learning community

And in Learning Pioneers we have all 3

*Quoted from Dr Kulvarn Atwal's, "The Thinking School"
GTCE study 2007

Intellectually curious, researched-informed and widely experienced, Becky brings her logical, analytical and child-centred thinking throughout her feedback in the Learning Pioneers Community.

Becky supports different approaches across schools to unpick and refine what we want to create in our school. This is not an easy or straight-forward process. Time is given for struggle and grappling with concepts. She understands that through reflective practice and articulation of thoughts educators will implement the changes that will allow children in their care to thrive and flourish."

Lead thinkers in a small, intimate group

Being part of Becky’s Learning Pioneer’s learning community is quite simply the best professional learning I have received in my 30 years of experience. Becky is a hugely inspirational leader.

She directs us as a group, along new pathways of thinking and under her guidance, we co-discover new elements which will make a difference to children’s learning. She has a network of leading educationalists at her fingertips who are invited to join Q and A sessions with us, and she is constantly posing new lines of inquiry for us. Becky’s energy and passion is contagious. Learning with Becky is an exciting, energising experience."

Suggested packages

Supercharge and magnify the impact of learning and collective efficacy 

The best way to supercharge and magnify the impact of learning and collective efficacy in your school is to have a combination of learning, sharing and collaborating from each sector of the community. We’ve put together a few combinations to make the most impact in your whole school.

These are merely suggestions based on potential scenarios we’ve seen work before, but since each school is at a unique stage on their journey, please reach out to discuss a bespoke combination that suits your specific situation.

Dip Your Toes In

This package is designed for your teachers and your school to “get a feel” for Learning Pioneers with low risk and low investment. Here, your staff will get to try ideas out; however, this will be less likely to have a whole school deep impact.

  • 1 teacher in “Community” 
  • 2 teachers in “Courses”
