I am a Senior Lecturer in Education at UWE. I have been a lecturer and researcher in higher education for six years. Prior to this, I spent sixteen years teaching, lecturing, and managing adult and community education, further education, and special educational needs, including Steiner based education, and being a head teacher of a residential special school. My PhD is entitled 'What gives life to critical pedagogy in the lifelong learning sector?' It explores the inspiration and motivations of practitioners of critical pedagogy in the current educational climate.
