June Giveaway - Win with Axcis Education


With Father’s Day being the highlight of June, our June 2022 giveaway offers you the opportunity to win a copy of Kim Johnson’s book A Journey to and Beyond the Blackboard: Memories of a Boy Who Became a Maverick Headteacher.

An autobiographical novel detailing Mr Johnson's life from his childhood in Germany and Cyprus to working and experiencing the highs and lows of working in education with young people with complex educational needs.

This is a fantastic resource, not just for Headteachers, senior leaders or SENCOs but all educators, especially those who work with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), complex and additional needs.


About the prize 

Written during the 2020 lockdown, Kim Johnson’s 39 years in education (22 years as a Headteacher/Principal) offers wealth of insight as you can see in the description of the book below,

Kim Johnson has spent his life striving to achieve outstanding education specifically for children with special educational needs, and to bring fulfillment and confidence to each and every one of his students’ lives.

A journey to and Beyond the Blackboard follows the highs and lows of a life devoted to helping others, at times at a detriment to his own personal life.

It examines the relationships with his colleagues, associates and students.

His authority, knowledge and experience in his chosen pathway leading to the corridors of Westminster – and he still rides his Harley.
