    Personal profile

    Biography

    My current post as Faculty Learning and Teaching Development Lead involves working across the Faculty to introduce new initiatives to enhance learning and teaching within both OfS and ITE programmes. Previous to this I had led PGCE Business programmes, which had developed from my experiences of teaching Business and Economics within a local sixth form college.

    In addition, I work across the University on key priorities, disseminating outwards the good and excellent practice that exists within the Faculty as well as bringing good practice and policy into the Faculty.  Facilitating this role has been my membership of the Institutional Learning and Teaching Fellowship scheme as Faculty Senior Learning and Teaching Fellow and Learning and Teaching Fellow.  As a result of this I led a University-wide working group regarding the experience of and support for Commuter Students.  

    A key aspect of my current role ismy role as Chair of the Faculty Employability Sub-Committee, reflecting and enhancing my current research interest of employability and the interplay between social justice/ social mobility within a neo-liberal agenda where success is measured by government definitions of highly-skilled and well-paid employment. 

    Whilst a PGCE  Business programme leader I undertook research into the development of pedagogy that supports the delivery of the Business curriculum such as problem based learning, BTEC delivery, and the place of Business Links to deliver an outstanding learning experience for business students within 11-19 educational contexts.  

    And previous to all of this, I was a Senior Investment Manager (i.e stockbroker) with Wise Speke & Co, which became part of Brewin Dolphin plc.
