I have worked in education for twenty years and trained large numbers of teachers in that time. I am especially interested in supporting individuals through coaching and mentoring activity. I have been a teacher educator for 10 years and have been involved in supporting new teachers into employment.
My responsibilities at Bishop Burton College include delivery of teacher training programmes, marking of work, observing students in their work placement and developing teaching materials.
My role involves working with a small teach of lecturers to deliver and develop teacher training programmes which are validated by the University of Huddersfield and City and Guilds. The staff team within which I work are dedicated to developing themselves professionally through research and are currently involved in supporting new staff and developing mentoring materials.
