The broad range of subjects taught enables me to be flexible in terms of the delivery. One of the key areas of delivery has been the CIPD programmes at levels 3 and 5, whilst also having a significant input into the Human Resources modules on BTEC Edexcel Levels 3, 4 and 5.

Research interests

My recent research investigated how the use of reflective practice techniques, developed through the Initial Teacher Training Post-Compulsory in-service programmes, are utilised by newly qualified teachers in their application for QTLS and improving their skills as tutors in the lifelong learning sector within their post qualification year. This research formed part of MA in Education.
