'Success is a Journey' is a beautifully written collection of his recent essays about the education landscape, reflecting Roy's very high regard for teaching and schools. Over the past thirty years, Roy has written widely on school and college inspection, curriculum innovation, global education, policy and politics. His love of classrooms and enjoyment in watching children succeed are always present. His conversations with students, teachers and leaders have informed the content of many of the essays in this collection. Roy Blatchford's influence in establishing national standards in England's schools is evident in the contents of Part Two of the book. He was lead author of the the DfE Teachers' Standards, Master Teacher Standard and National Standards of Excellence for Headteachers. Part Three explains and exemplifies the practice of Blinks, a distinctive approach to reviewing and reporting on education settings which he has, with colleagues, established over the past fifteen years in the UK and internationally.
