About me

I am a senior academic in post at UWE since 2012, successful within my discipline and demonstrating collaborative leadership across disciplines, faculties and the public sector. I have been programme leader for 6 years which has required significant leadership for pedagogy and the design, quality enhancement and quality assurance of the programme. I have lead a number of modules in Midwifery and Nursing for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. As a module leader I have had responsibility for leading module design and pedagogy for promoting quality standards in teaching and assessment within the module. I have experience in research leadership and leading service improvement projects for enhancing people's current and future health. I recently made a successful application and research proposal for the ACE/HAS Connecting Research Pilot Project Grant Scheme which will investigate Somalian parenthood in the context of migration. I have had a lead role as stream lead for training and education in the Bristol Health Partners, Heath Integration Team for improving perinatal mental health. I can demonstrate multiprofessional educational leadership in the design and delivery of the Perinatal Mental Health CPD module and leading the BSc (Hons) Health and Social care.
