I’m the GCSE Art tutor, a teaching assistant and research lead at a Nottingham special school for social, emotional and mental health difficulties (formerly SEBD). They’re all boys and mostly they are lovely. I’ve worked with all age groups at some point (7-16) but at the moment I spend my time teaching art and delivering 1-1 literacy interventions.

I completed my MEd a while ago and keep up to date with educational research through various means, including the researchEd conferences. I’ve been the school’s research lead since September 2014 and been involved invarious things including a national research trial of Lesson Study, working with Transform TSA, and setting up education journal clubs all over the world.

All my journal club stuff is here: edujournalclub.com

I am the Learning and Development Lead for the Raleigh Learning Trust and write a half-termly L&D bulletin, Relay. I’m a Teacher Development Trust Associate in CPD Leadership and this year I have also been leading the Derby Research School ‘Evidence Champions’ programme.
