Following undergraduate studies in Philosophy and a PGCE in primary teaching I began my work in education in 1976 working first as a classroom teacher in Glasgow and later as teacher of English as and Additional Language for Avon Education Authority. I was a Community Teacher at an inner city primary school and then took on the role of Advisory Teacher across East Bristol. I first became involved in initial teacher education and continuing professional development in the 1980s at Bristol University, University of West of England and Bath Spa University. I took up a full time post in teacher education in 1992 and transferred to Educational Studies in 1999. I joined Plymouth University in 2002. My role now involves research and academic leadership, postgraduate supervision and teaching.
I am an Associate of SAPERE (www.sapere.org.uk) and have worked independently as a consultant, giving presentations and leading courses on teaching critical thinking, philosophy with children and ethical dilemma training across all phases of education, including higher education, both in the UK and internationally.
