I have worked in education for the last twenty years, in both teaching and training roles in the private and Further Education sectors. At Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College (EHWLC) I spent ten years in Professional Development as a teacher trainer and CPD Lead for the college. This role involved planning and delivering CPD programmes and events as well as setting up a coaching network. While working in this role I became interested in whole organization approaches to improving teaching and learning. This led to qualifications in project management through PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams and the roll out of a successful two-year Supported Experiments action research project for teachers.
I was based at the Learning Skills Network in a managing consultant role for two years and worked with over thirty colleges to improve their CPD, project management and coaching delivery.
I am now a freelance trainer, consultant and coach. I qualified to coach through ILM and specialised in Solution Focused Coaching approaches at SolutionsAcademy in Germany. I deliver project planning, 1:1 and group coaching and CPD training for clients. I am currently supporting over twenty FE colleges with projects related to teaching and learning improvement and present at conferences with Geoff Petty to share good practice from this work.
