I teach across the BEd Primary, PGCE and School Direct teaching routes. My main area of teaching is focussed on Professional Studies. I am the lead for the BEd 2 trainees and also am responsible for placements and mentor training.
I have been an Assistant Headteacher in a federation of primary schools and also a literacy subject leader. I have worked mainly in Upper KS2 and was also the ITT co-ordinator working with trainees from all routes into teaching.

I am interested in Reflective Practice and how trainee teachers engage in the process during their training. I am also keen to explore how a Coaching and Mentoring model can enhance the relationship between mentor and trainee in school.
