About me

A languages graduate, my early career in the financial sector took me across Europe and Asia. In 2004, I followed my vocation and completed my PGCE: Early Years and Modern Foreign Languages at Goldsmiths.
My passion for facilitating children’s communication is fuelled by my own early experience living in a new language and culture, when my father’s work moved our family to Brazil.
In recent years, I have worked in learning support with students ranging from primary years to post-graduate level.
Since 2016, I have lectured on undergraduate and postgraduate courses with a focus on early years and inclusion. I joined UWE in January 2021 as a Senior Lecturer in Education and Early Childhood.

Area of expertise

My interests lie in inclusive education – life-long and life-wide.

My article based on my masters research was published in the Dyspraxia Foundation Professional Journal 14/2017

Gillie, S. (2017) 'The potential for executive function targeted support for learners with specific learning difficulties' Dyspraxia Foundation Professional Journal 14, pp.8-17.

My doctoral thesis focused on families who home educate when schools are not considered to meet children’s needs.
