Louise  Tickle Education and social affairs journalist

An award-winning education and social affairs journalist, Louise writes for publications including the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times and Newsweek.

A confident and engaging public speaker and commentator, Louise is available to chair conferences, workshops and seminars.
