I am a member of the Faculty of Education and lecture in Teacher Education with responsibility as Head of Year 3. I also lecture in Religious Education and Professional Studies at undergraduate and PGCE level. Doctoral research interests through the ‘Centre for Christian Education’ are in Values in Education, with an emphasis on faith-based schools. I have worked in collaboration with Christ Church Canterbury University on materials for training teachers relating to the ethos of faith-based schools, the results of which are distributed nationally. A further interest is global learning, including the eco-schools agenda and human rights. My master’s degree was in Theology, with a focus on peace movements in the 20th century. Prior to working at Liverpool Hope, I taught in secondary and primary schools, as a teacher and manager of RE, PSHE and Citizenship.
