After graduating with a degree in primary initial teacher training, I went on to work in infant and primary schools in Cambridgeshire and Wiltshire. I completed my MA and took on the roles of student mentor, Key Stage leader and maths subject leader. Following 16 years of primary classroom experience I moved into Initial Teacher Training, joining a vibrant maths team here at the University of Gloucestershire. After leading the BEd primary programme for a number of years, I have now moved to the role of Primary Partnership Lead. In this role, I oversee the school experience modules of our post and under-graduate ITE programmes and work closely with local primary schools to establish and develop a strong partnership . I continue to work with the primary maths team and with our regional Maths Hub to deliver CPD programmes to primary school colleagues.
