I have a background as an early years and primary teacher She has held the position of headteacher in both a nursery and a primary school. In 1997 I joined MMU and worked extensively on the CPD programme at both undergraduate and post graduate level
My research interests include the way trainees on employment-based routes into teaching develop as professionals and the management of quality in early years education. I have edited books supporting trainees on ITT programmes.
