Having taught Science for over 24 years, much of my career has been geared towards departmental improvement, ranging from individual support in classrooms to the development of overarching policy and practice. Specialising in biology and physics, my skills have been employed in various guises both nationally and internationally: while working in Auckland, New Zealand, I played a significant role in leading the transition from New Zealand academic qualifications to iGCSE and A Levels and, more recently, supporting Lightcliffe Academy with their transition into the Trust and out of Special Measures. As a Lead Practitioner at both Thornton Grammar School and Abbey Grange Academy, in addition to bespoke support and mentoring of colleagues, I have led and coordinated the development of the new KS3 programmes of study and A Level biology specifications and the revised GCSE across the Multi Academy Trust. Furthermore, I utilise my expertise in pedagogical practice to deliver whole staff CPD sessions in order to maximise didactic efficacy in all areas of the curriculum.
