Following the completion of my Masters at the Institute of Education, UCL, London, I then worked there as research fellow before moving to the northeast in 2000. I worked at Sunderland University where I led the BA Primary Education programme, and completed my PhD. I moved to Northumbria in 2015 where I now lead the primary Teach First cohort and the Educational Research and Enquiry strand of the BA (Hons) Primary Education programme including the undergraduate dissertation module.
