James Nottingham is the Director of Sustained Success, a company committed to creating world-class schools through teaching, learning, creativity and leadership. Starting out as an industrial quality controller, James went on to become a sports coach for deaf teenagers after having volunteered as a charity worker in apartheid South Africa. He later qualified as a teacher and as head of department, led the development of the direct teaching of thinking across the curriculum. This significant work became an integral part of the new national curriculum in England and Wales. In 1999, he featured in a BBC documentary on Philosophy for Children, which helped develop a network of more than 3000 teachers who continue to use these successful strategies. A year later he founded a social regeneration project that grew into a multi-million pound, award-winning scheme raising the aspirations and achievement of young people across north east England. Today, James is a sought-after keynote speaker, trainer and presenter working with schools and projects throughout the world, including regular workshops in Spain. His first book, "Learning to Succeed: the FACTS" is available in English, Spanish and Norwegian (www.sustained-success.com)
