Baz has spent nearly all of his professional career working in education. After studying philosophy at King’s College London, he got his starter kick working as a special educational needs teaching assistant. He then spent the next five years teaching Religious Education and Psychology in inner city schools in East London and Manchester. He stumbled out of the classroom and into educational technology, joining the founding team of Teacher Booker while completing an MPhil in Psychology at the University of Cambridge where his field work involved teaching and researching in two Pupil Referral Units in London.
He then joined Teacher Tapp, the UK’s biggest daily survey of teachers, as Research & Programmes Lead where he led an Innovate UK-funded trial of daily teacher surveying in Ghana. He has written on issues related to education, politics and data for The Evening Standard, Schools Week, Teach Primary, Teach Secondary, Cambridge University Press, The Tribune and The Jacobin.
