Neil Griffiths was a Primary School Headteacher for 13 years before taking on the role of Director of a National Literacy Project for the Basic Skills Agency. Many publishers and institutions have asked Neil to contribute his wealth of experience to their projects over the years - his knowledge, his gift of story, his passion for teaching, and his love of children - helping them to produce prized resources and to achieve success. Neil also finds time to write his own children's books, which feature strong storylines, memorable characters, enchanting language, and arresting illustrations.
Neil loves to tell a story and a story time with him is a rare and highly entertaining event as he magically draws his audience into his storyworlds.
This is a collaborative project, organised by the above organisations.
