I am the Director of Initial Teacher Education and my main responsibilities are to ensure the maintenance and enhancement of the quality of work within the ITE programmes across the School of Education and Human Development.


My main interests are in Early Childhood and Learning and the Development of 0-7 year olds. My Early Childhood Masters Degree is in Child-Initiated Learning in the Foundation Phase and I am particularly interested in child-initiated play, the child's voice and ownership of their own learning. I am currently registered for the EdD programme researching the impact of the new programmes for Initial Teacher Education in Wales.
