I moved into teaching in further education in 2006 following a career in industry, initially specialising in working with young people and adults with specific literacy needs. My teaching career has involved the delivery of A-level English Literature, Key Skills, Skills for Life, ESOL and GCSE English.

I have worked in quality management and as a coach and mentor for new and established teachers, leading me to work on various projects including with the Prison Service and the delivery of whole college staff development. I moved to UCB in October 2016 and subsequently became the Senior Curriculum Lead for English, both GCSE and Functional Skills.
