Personal profile


I joined the University of Huddersfield in 2015 as Head of Division for Initial Teacher Education although I have been associated with the School of Education and Professional Development for more than 10 years. I am currently the Acting Head of Department ITE, Lifelong Learning, Head of Division & Network Manager

Previously, I taught in Further Education colleges (FE) for 15 years in addition to being a Centre Manager for Teacher Education, Head of Teaching, Learning, Assessment & Quality and an Advanced Practitioner for much of that time.  In 2010 I trained as an Ofsted Inspector for teacher education undertaking mock inspections for colleges and training organisations.

My first degree is in psychology and I maintain a keen interest in this subject, training as a psychotherapist in 2008.   My membership with the British Psychological Society is ongoing.

I have a PGCE, Post Graduate qualification in Coaching and my MA was in Education and Professional Development. Last year I was recognised as a Chartered Manager with the Chartered Management Institute and I was also awarded a Certificate in Strategic Leadership.  I am currently studying for a Doctor of Education award at the University with a research interest in the academic and social success of autistic students.
