Lecturer in Education
I am Deputy Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Education Studies with Integrated Foundation Year and Year 1 Leader for BA (Hons) Education Studies.
My journey into academia began as a mature student on an Access to Higher Education college course. I then went on to complete my BA (Hons) English Language and Literature degree at The University of Sunderland before graduating with a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training (English Pathway).
I worked in the further education sector, where I taught functional skills, GCSE English, and A level English as well as A level drama, before returning to the University of Sunderland to lecture in the School of Education to lecture on the PCET generic and English pathyway.
I currently lecture on BA (Hons) Education Studies and have developed the new BA (Hons) Education Studies with Integrated Foundation Year.
