Profile summary

Gill joined CCCU in 2012 moving  from Barton Court Grammar School.  There she spent 7 years working in the role of  Primary Languages Coordinator where her main focus was to  train, motivate, and facilitate networking opportunities for  teachers of  primary languages  in the Canterbury city and coastal area.    She was a general primary practitioner for 15 years before that. 

At Canterbury Christ Church, Gill works with BA and post-graduate  primary education students on a range of different pathways.

Her main interest lies in developing student teachers' motivation, confidence and pedagogical approaches to deliver effective primary languages lessons.

Along with colleague, Vikki Schulze, she  runs the Canterbury ALL primary languages hub.

She takes great pleasure from arranging opportunities  for Y primary languages student teachers to work with pupils in local primary schools to develop their pedagogy.

Gill continues to deliver INSET in local primary schools and has recently delivered CPD to primary teachers from around Kent.

Teaching and subject expertise
