Lecturer in Primary ITT

I graduated from Keele University in 1991 with an honours degree in Psychology and Music and completed my PGCE at the University of East Anglia the following year. With over 30 years of experience as a primary school teacher (including 10 as a head teacher), I joined the University's School of Education in 2015 as a specialist in primary science education.



Teaching and supervision

Currently, I am responsible for supporting first-year undergraduate students on our BA (Hons) Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course. In addition, I teach a range of ITT courses including BA, PGCE, and PGCE School Direct.

My role at the University allows me the privilege of supporting trainees during school experience and my teaching commitment covers a range of subjects including science, design and technology, music, and professional studies.

I am currently subject leader for primary science and music in the School of Education.
