Lecturer in Post Compulsory Education and Training
I am an Academic Tutor in the PCET team, joining the team in 2021.
I graduated in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Performing Arts and completed my PGCE PCET a year later at the University of Sunderland. I found a particular interest in the English pathway and decided to complete my placement at a college teaching GCSE re-sit students.
Throughout the year, I became more interested in Government policies regarding both FE and HE therefore I decided to pursue a Masters in Education which I finished in 2019.
I have a strong background in both performing arts and creativity therefore I am keen to enhance my own teaching and development while providing the same opportunities for my learners.
Teaching and supervision
I teach on Post Compulsory Education and Training PGCE.
Research interests for potential research students
- Performing arts
- Decolonising the curriculum
I have explored research and literature associated with engagement, motivation and the affective domain for college re-sit students as evidenced in my PGCE PCET project: "Written or Oral Feedback: Does the Nature and Format of Feedback Have an Impact on Student Learning?"
My Master's research project focused on higher education performing art students and the link between anxiety and strategies to overcome stage fright: "Investigating Performance Anxiety and Coping Strategies in Undergraduate Performing Arts Students".
In addition to my professional interests, I have a passion for performing, travel and cooking a variety of different cuisines.
I am currently teaching myself video editing and graphic design, with a further interest in music production
