Learning Pioneers is an international learning community of creative, open-minded educators.

We want you to feel empowered, in control, in the driving seat of your professional learning journey

We navigate a journey of learning together, interviewing leading educational thinkers and, through provocations, rich dialogue and conversations we embed their expertise into the DNA of our classrooms and schools.

Not just a teachers' community, no

A creative powerhouse, yes!

Dive in!

Teaching doesn’t need to be what you were taught.

Nor does professional development. What if, instead of sitting through another whole school training; instead of waiting for that speaker to come to you, you could take your professional development into your own hands and make your learning more personalised for your learners.

Share adventures with other creatives and be inspired.

A joyful group of educators

How connected do you feel with enthusiastic, creative educators? Do you have people to plot with? Get excited with? How much would you like to amplify that connection? Learning Pioneers is full of buzzing, welcoming, inspired practitioners across the globe waiting to collaborate with you and welcome you into the fold.

Factories love conformity
That’s why they are full of robots

We’ve all been there; we know exactly how it can feel. Buried in paperwork, targets, external expectations - It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, lost, frustrated. Maybe you are beginning to wonder why you got into education in the first place? Where has your mojo gone? Your joie de vivre? Your excited teaching spirit? We’re here to reconnect you to that; to amplify that; to blow your enthusiasm out of the water and empower you to fall back in love with teaching again. Because you’re more than a robot taking orders.

Are you ready for the ride?!

“The Learning Pioneers are a fabulous community of inquirers. Their camaraderie and curiosity is inspiring; their professionalism is admirable; and their mission to innovate and improve is truly commendable”

Become a change-maker

From your classroom feel empowered to make the changes you’ve always known were right - Guided by the world’s leading experts; driven by your wisdom. Become bulletproof in your practice.

Be the change

I am a caring educator, just like you

I have taught in classrooms across the globe from the southern-tip of Argentina to schools across the UK to international schools in Thailand and Switzerland. I’ve experienced a range of curriculums, from the UK National Curriculum to PYP to teaching English as an additional language. I’m always learning and experiencing new and exciting ways of inspiring my learners.

Collaboration with the world’s leading minds

I have professional relationships and have collaborated with many of the world’s leading educators, including Kath Murdoch, Guy Claxton and James Nottingham amongst others. Developing and nurturing these trustful, nourishing professional relationships feels directly into the thinking, growth and inspiration of Learning Pioneers.

Discussion points

That’s 195 times our members have reflected on, deepened and adjusted their practice. We like to think about this like drops of oil going into mayonnaise* - slow, purposefully and mindfully developing our practice.

You are not an island.
You needn’t feel alone.

There’s a whole virtual staffroom of the most welcoming, inspiring practitioners just waiting to welcome you into the fold, to plot with you, inspire you, make you feel at home. Our community has the perfect balance of warmth and nurture and challenge.

The sky is the limit. There is no limit.

With a plethora of world thinkers, incredible colleagues to plot with, collaborative books studies, Masterminds and “Quests”, there is no limit to where you can take your practice - Go beyond what you ever imagined was possible.

You are now at the leading edge of learning.

By co-creating interviews for lead thinkers and inviting them into your living room, you will get “hot off the brain” thinking, never heard or seen before. Even our lead thinkers tell us they develop new ideas and theories as a result of being invited into our community.

Amazing international colleagues who have your back

The Learning Pioneers community is built to connect. Through weekly provocations and conversations, regular “lives” and the possibility of Mastermind meetings, you will connect with your dream colleagues who share the same enthusiasm, passions and interests you do.

A closed community

Away from the distractions of social media, we have a purpose-built, closed platform to safely share ideas, inspiration and struggles.

Nurture yourself

Self-care, nurture and rest is at the heart of our community. YOUR well-being is our top priority. We regularly check in with each other’s well-being and discuss strategies to reduce overwhelm and promote healthy living habits. This is one of the many reasons our members comment on the impact Learning Pioneers has on their professional and personal growth.
