Biography

I joined the University in September 2015 and I am currently working on the Secondary PGCE programme and teaching computer science at Holmfirth High School at Key stage 3 and Key stage 4. I initially began working in industry, marketing electronic components. After several years I entered the teaching profession as a Business and ICT teacher and worked at a number of secondary schools in Rotherham and Barnsley.  I have a keen interest in learning and teaching and have had the opportunity to work as a Learning Champion, Mentor, Faculty Leader and as a Senior Leader in a secondary school environment. Some key achievements have been to develop and implement a range of strategies to monitor data and progress across subjects, which has raised standards of attainment across schools. In addition I have developed professional development and bespoke training for both trainee and professional teachers.

Research and Scholarship

I am particularly interested in Pedagogy and the development of On-line learning.

Teaching and Professional Activities

My role combines lecturing at the University of Huddersfield on the Secondary PGCE programme and teaching computer science at Holmfirth High School at Key stage 3 and Key stage 4. I lecture on the professional teaching modules and develop computer science subject knowledge for trainee teachers.
