He is ambitious and committed to making a difference to the education system by inspiring changes. He teaches, tweets (@ASTSupportAAli) and tweaks his practice to help others improve theirs, which in turn helps him and his students too.
For Amjad, education is about ensuring wherever you come from, whatever your parents do or not do, does not impact on a students’ potential of success. Whatever success means to that young person, it should be found and celebrated.
Amjad has previously co-organised some of the country’s largest teachmeets such as #TMOxford and #TMLondon. Most recently he has co-founded #BAMEed a grass-roots movement aimed at ensuring our diverse communities are represented as a substantive part of the education workforce for teachers and leaders in education.
