Aaron has 20 years’ experience working in schools as a teacher, department and faculty leader. He has also taken on pastoral and behaviour management positions within school and, as a consequence of these varied roles, led teams of teachers (trainee teachers, NQTs and experienced full and part-time teachers) through a range of whole-school initiatives. A veteran of many Ofsted inspections, a large number of practices and procedures used within his departments have been initiated across the whole-school and he has run workshops on these in both local schools and other academy trusts and LAs.
He is also the author of one of the best-selling KS3 textbook series in Britain (KS3 History by Aaron Wilkes) and has worked extensively with publishers and GCSE exam boards to develop teaching resources and assessment materials. He has written a number of teaching articles (for the BBC, Oxford University Press and SecEd Magazine, for example) and has run workshops and lectured at a number of teaching/academic conferences.
