Affirming diversity: inclusion for sexuality and gender minorities (2017) 2017 Annual conference paper. This paper updates members about the continued work of the Rainbow Taskforce. It includes a summary of the work of the group since it was formed in 1993 and makes suggestions for the next steps in our work to make schools more inclusive of minority genders and sexualities.

An advanced qualifications pathway for secondary teachers (2007) 2007 Annual conference paper. It is one thing for governments to sing the praises of a highly qualified, highly skilled secondary teaching profession; it is another thing entirely to get them to pay for it. The professional learning landscape for teachers is littered with the debris of populist ideas, poorly implemented and done on the cheap. If the government is serious about its professed commitment to effective teaching, it will need to do more than talk about it.
