Glynwen researched behaviour management during her Masters Degree. Her study consisted of newly qualified teachers which included observation sessions of KS3 classes which led to intervention sessions with teacher participants to promote positive behaviour within the classroom. Since graduating, Glynwen has focused on developing further leadership skills, promoting positive behaviour, and creating resources to enhance the student learning experience. She has also taken part in educational schemes such as Building Learning Power, Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme, Outstanding Facilitator Program with OLEVI and a middle leader’s program with GwE.
