Lecturer in Physical Education

Sports Leadership, Education and Society

I appreciate a mature and developmental view of education. In order to humanise the learning process, I believe in working alongside students to develop their understanding of the teacher’s role in education and society.


I contribute to a range of modules within Physical Education and Sports Coaching. It is my responsibility to provide learners with the opportunity to acquire the skills for a career within the varied contexts of PE and Sports Coaching.

As lead coach, in a community based netball project, I work with individuals spanning all age groups to combat obesity and lifestyle-related health conditions.

I am a reflective practitioner in which my experience of both teaching and coaching young people has enabled my interest in the Sociology of Education to flourish. I am currently focussing my research attention on Economic Determinism and the Hidden Curriculum.
