About me

Having being in Education for more than 30 years the last 20 years have been in Higher Education, UWE.

My professional experience as a teacher in primary schools led to my becoming a senior lecturer in Teacher Training in 2002.  Since then, though, I have moved into Professional Development and become Programme Leader for the Post-Graduate qualification in Teaching and Learning in HE which lecturers undertake; I am also now Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Education degree which has the purpose of developing educators with skills and knowledge which will enable them to be educators in a vast range of contexts.

I am also currently working with the University Business Partnerships to develop educator programmes in companies in Bristol.

Area of expertise

My current interests are: 

 -being involved in the development and teaching of the PGCertLTHE programme  

- designing bespoke programmes with businesses to enhance their educational opportunities 

- exploring strategies and approaches for successful transition into Higher Education.


I have extensive experience of Learning and Teaching in both informal and formal environments and settings, both nationally and internationally through leading the PCAP (Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice) in Oman. 


I have led curriculum design within all stages of Education and also for companies and charities - such as Aardman and Bristol Zoo - working to develop their own Educator programmes and pedagogic approaches to enable them to work with both adults and children effectively.


Assessment and feedback: I was seconded as the assessment and feedback co-ordinator for UWE for 2 years to design and implement key initiatives for enhancement in these areas.


I supervised dissertation students in Initial Teacher Education,  BA Education and Early Childhood.
