I have recently joined the PGCE team working part-time as a School Partnership Facilitator and contribute across the programme, supporting PGCE students in schools, delivering Whole School Initiatives CPD sessions and supporting School ITT mentors.
The rest of my working week is spent teaching RE and PSHE in a local secondary school. I have been lucky enough to work in two high performing secondary schools teaching a range of courses including GCSE and A level RE, Sociology, PSHE, Citizenship and General Studies. I have worked both as a Head of Department and also an Advanced Skills Teacher/Lead Practitioner focussing on improving the quality of teaching and learning across the curriculum.
Throughout my career I have worked with trainees from a wide range of HEI’s in the North of England and really enjoy guiding and supporting them as they embark on their early teaching careers. I also very much enjoy being in the classroom and hope that my enthusiasm for teaching and learning helps trainees as they join this exciting profession.
