I am currently lead for the undergraduate and post graduate Primary Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Programmes at the University of Huddersfield.
Prior to this I was Senior Lecturer in Professional Studies and led the PGCE School Direct Primary Programme at Manchester Metropolitan University. I also had responsibility for Prevent, SMSC and equalities across all primary programmes. My other ITE experience includes Programme Lead at Bradford College for the Primary B.Ed and Primary Postgraduate Certificate in Education courses; Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies, Religious Education, Professional Studies and Humanities.
A qualified teacher, I have taught across key stages in both primary and secondary schools. I have also worked for Ofsted as a Section 5 inspector.
I have initiated and implemented several successful and award winning, cross curricular projects, focusing on diversity, religion, equality and community cohesion.
Whilst working as Manager for Diversity and Cohesion (Education Bradford) and as Head of the Peace Museum (UK) I designed and produced a number of practitioner resources, in a variety of media, including ‘Stand Up, Speak Out, Make a Difference!’ and 'Choices Then and Now'. The latter was highlighted by the Home Office in 2015 as a model of ‘best practice’ in Prevent education and offered as a resource to all local councils across the UK.
I have contributed to radio programmes around issues of diversity and cohesion; including a brief interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme about Christmas in multi-cultural primary schools and I have contributed to programmes on BBC Radio Leeds’ and Bradford Community Radio (BCB). I was interviewed and featured in a Guardian newspaper article on alternative World War projects, discussing the rationale behind Choices then and Now.
I have had articles published in RE Today, Child Education, REsource, Citizenship Magazine and Museum Advisor on line. I have research cited in the International Bibliography of Sikh Studies (Singh 2005) and a chapter on ‘Kokeshi: Stand Up, Speak Out, Make a Difference!’ features in the international publication Museums for Peace: Transforming Cultures (Apsel and Barrett (Eds.) 2012).
I am interested in access to education, diversity, cohesion and equality, SMSC, History (particularly using the past to explore the present and inform the future) and RE.
I have a particular interest in how schools and ITE providers interpret the Prevent agenda and mainstream this in schools and HE institutions. My research mirrors this interest and centres on creative, effective curriculum design, both in schools and in ITE and an exploration of how Government policy, particularly Prevent, may be interpreted in the context of educating for a safe, just and equitable society.
