I coordinate Mathematics Education provision across all Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes as well as the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) opportunities within the sphere of Mathematics Education for serving teachers and other education professionals. My work embraces primary and secondary education provision.

Teaching responsibilities

I teach across a variety of PGCE, other postgraduate and BEd modules. These mainly focus on mathematics within Initial Teacher Education but my work also embraces CPD for serving teachers in local and regional schools. I coordinate the Mathematics Subject Pathway on the BEd programme as well as the Subject Specialist Enhancement for Mathematics on our PGCE programmes. Additionally, I contribute to the Learning and Teaching modules (Level 7) on the Core PGCE programme.
