Having qualified as an Advanced Skills Teacher in 2009, much of my career has been geared towards school improvement, ranging from individual support in classrooms to the development of overarching policy and practice. Specialising in literacy and communication skills, my work has been utilised in various guises across the city of Leeds: while working across the Gorse Academies Trust, I played a significant role in raising the Ofsted rating of both the Morley and Farnley Academies and, more recently, supporting Hillcrest Primary with their transition into the Trust and out of Special Measures. As a Local Authority AST, in addition to targeted outreach work coordinated by Leeds Learning Partnership, I was directly responsible for planning and delivering the English Subject Leader Development meetings, alongside speaking at various Senior Leadership conferences. I received my Masters certification in 2008 in the area of Special Educational Needs, and am currently the educational consultant for the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
