or the last 20 years, Ben has worked for educational charities in Hull, Derbyshire and most recently at Tide in Birmingham.  This has included campaigning for a learner entitlement to global learning and developing the practice of teachers and educators in support of that work.  During this time, Ben has worked with a huge variety of stakeholders from communities, NGOs and government - both in the UK and internationally.  Prior to working in the education sector Ben ran community newspapers in Devon and Derby.  He also taught at a Special School in Dagoretti, Kenya.
Ben brings with him particular expertise in network building, group facilitation and communications.  He has written widely on educational issues, and has a long track record of campaigning for equalities, against racism and fascism, and in capacity building to promote sustainable development, human rights and social justice.
