Welcome to my website. I have worked extensively on the issues of education, Europe and the environment, including as the Member of Parliament for Stroud between 2010 and 2017. Between 2015 and 2017 I was chair of the Education Select Committee. I am the founder of Dunshiel Education, which brings together senior education policy experts to provide bespoke services to those working in the education community and related sectors.
I am Honorary Professor of Politics and Education at Nottingham University and Chair of the Commission on Sustainable Learning for Life, Work & a Changing Economy, as well as senior adviser at PLMR public relations, Chair of Modern Europe, a member of the National Governance Association’s Board of Trustees, a non executive adviser at Wild Search, Chair of the Association of Dental Groups and on the advisory board of Finito. I am also working towards the forthcoming publication of my book Progressive, Productive, Proper: A New Reform Agenda for Education which will be published in spring 2018.
