I have been the course leader for the PGCE Secondary geography course at Liverpool Hope University since 2005. Prior to joining Hope I worked in a number of state secondary schools in London and the Home Counties for 16 years where I held post as head of geography and head of year. I am also an A level geography examiner and moderator for Edexcel. I also teach on the BAQTS course and the Prinary PGCE course within my specialism of geography. I have established a number of international links since joining Hope including exchange and research work with Poland, Romania and Turkey.
Research Interests: Comparisions in geography teachers' education across the European Union' Global dimension; Pedagogical action research; Moving geography education forward.
