Personal profile


I am a senior lecturer in Initial Teacher Training.  I manage the Primary Phase ITT and am Course Lead for the BEd in this, as well as leading the PGCE Computer Science course. 

I previously worked in the Technology Faculty delivering outreach in STEM subjects through a wide range of activities for schools and colleges. The aim is to get people to develop an interest in these subjects and hopefully want to study them further. I am particularly keen to engage with groups that are under-represented in these subjects.

Prior to this I was a teacher and taught in a number of schools in London and the South Coast, with experience in leading Computing, Science and the Curriculum across the whole school.
