Ros Wilson is committed to raising standards in writing and education. Her concepts have helped many schools to raise standards in the UK and around the world.
Ros has over 45 years’ experience in education, including 27 years in schools, 10 years in senior management positions and 14 years in advisory and inspection work. Ros now focuses on writing and her consultancy within Andrell Education, specialising in training, advising and support work in schools.
On average, schools applying her methods have seen the majority of pupils progress between 3 and 7 sub-levels in a year.
Ros and Andrell Education have now teamed up with Oxford University Press to bring all schools easy access to the Big Writing methodology.
Ros refers to new research about the way parents talk to their children in daily life, and how their approach to communication can affect their child's vocabulary and comprehension skills.
