Welcome to EBTN

For those who want to know, simply and clearly, what works best in teaching.

We want your students to learn as easily as possible.

We don’t want you to waste your time using teaching techniques which are ineffective.

The one stop place to find out what works in education.

We want teachers to know ‘what works’ and be able to say ‘No’ when asked to do things which go against this evidence.



Welcome! Come on in and make yourself at home.

We’re all about evidence-based teaching here. We’ve sifted through loads of research and focused on five main sources of evidence. We’ve combined this with findings from neuroscience to come up with our Six Steps to Outstanding Learning.

EBTN is for everyone in the teaching profession. It’s relevant right from Early Years, through primary, secondary, and up to FE colleges, and it’s helpful for all subjects, genders, races, and environments.

There’s tons of info and suggestions here on how to apply our Six Steps. We hope that you’ll find it really helpful and that it’ll equip you to teach your students even more effectively!

There are two ways to enjoy EBTN. Which do you fancy?
