What if transforming your classroom
practice was easier than you thought?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Through learning with and from the world’s leading minds and plotting with the world’s leading practitioners you will get through the annoying paperwork in a breeze because you’ll be so focused on and excited about the learning in your classroom.Energise me

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.My story
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.Find out more about our speakers at our Philosophy page
Since our initial launch in January 2020, we have empowered over 150 educators through our community and Masterminds
We have embedded best practice from 10 of the world’s leading educational thinkers, including Kath Murdoch, James Nottingham, Ron Ritchhart and Guy Claxton. We have transformed through their process (and they love us too!).
Our members come from across the globe and span across 5 continents. We’re always looking to expand and diversify our community - Our power is in the plurality of our viewpoints.
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.
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.
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.
Away from the distractions of social media, we have a purpose-built, closed platform to safely share ideas, inspiration and struggles.
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.
There is a whole international community dying to meet you, ready to support you and cheer you along on your journey. Saying “hi” is a great first step!
Having the community at your fingertips means you won’t miss a drop of inspiration. Share ideas and inspiration in the supermarket queue or during your commute.
We inject more fuel and inspiration into our collective learning by inviting the world’s leading experts. As we invite in more thinkers, we make connections and deepen our understanding - And this is what makes us bulletproof in our practice. Watch out world!
Get excited and use these ideas to fuel your thinking and practice. As your practice expands, deepens and has laser-sharp meaning, you will fall back in love with teaching.
You are the author of your story.
It is in your power to write your story with others - to share ideas, get excited together, walk this journey together and to soar to new heights. All that is required is to take a chance on yourself, to believe to yourself and your own power to make that change.
