I have taught in a number of secondary schools, specialising in Modern Languages, becoming Deputy Head and Acting Headteacher of a large comprehensive in Hertfordshire. In 2002 I become a consultant to the Teacher Training Agency, subsequently the Training and Development Agency for Schools, specialising in partnerships. I was first Regional Partnership Manager (South-East) for the TDA and then took on a role advising Training Schools across the South-East and London. In 2010 I was asked to lead the Canterbury Christ Church University's iTeach programme.
Since joining the Faculty of Education I have led the first School Direct programme in collaboration with a number of leading academy chains and schools, especially in London, and am now the Partnership Development Lead for the North Kent area. I am the academic lead for the PGCE programme run in collaboration with the Bromley Schools Collegiate, a School-centred ITT provider in South-East London.
Research and knowledge exchange
Being a part-time member of the University staff, I am able to engage in a number of freelance consultancy projects for other ITE providers, particularly in Wales and the north of England. In this capacity I also co-led a national evaluation of the Return to Teach (RTT) programme for 5 years to 2012.
