PGCE Programme Lead, Senior Lecturer in Primary Education

I joined the School of Education and Society in 2019 as a senior lecturer across a range of Primary Education courses. Prior to this, I had 25 years experience of teaching across a range of first and primary schools in South-East Northumberland, including a year seconded to the Local Authority as a Literacy Lead teacher and most recently 10 years as a Primary Head Teacher.

I believe my experiences across a variety of roles within schools offer me the insight to support trainees in their journey to becoming successful teachers. I have mentored and coached many trainees and teachers new to the profession as a mentor and school leader to ensure they receive the best support and challenge in order to improve their own learning and teaching as they establish themselves within the classroom.

I lead the PGCE Primary Education programme for both September and January cohorts, supporting students and mentors throughout their training on campus and in  schools. My role also allows me to support students on the other school experience phases across the Primary Education undergraduate programmes.
