I taught a range of creative subjects in secondary education for seven years between 2007 and 2014 across Herts, Essex and Suffolk. During my teaching career I taught Drama, Music, Performing Arts, Media and English across Key Stages 3-5.
In 2014 I joined OCR and lead the development of their new GCSE (9-1) Drama and AS/A Level Drama and Theatre qualifications. This involved writing the specifications and sample assessment materials as well as producing resources to support teachers. I have collaborated with stakeholders including Ofqual and the Department for Education on subject issues and have built prominent links with industry practitioners. I have also engaged with the press, representing OCRs view on Drama to the public, including being interviewed for BBC Radio and being quoted in national and regional newspapers.
In April 2017, I became an Independent
Education Adviser and CPD trainer, supporting the work of teachers across the
country and internationally. I run in-house CPD sessions on curriculum and assessment, and consult
on a wide range of education projects.
In October 2017, I started a Masters of Education at Cambridge University in Educational Leadership and School Improvement.
