Roles on external bodies
Chief External Examiner for PGCE/Cert Ed ((inc DET) Programmes at Greenwich University
My teaching interests range from PGCE Diploma Education and Training to the sociological aspects of Military training. I am currently undertaking a PhD (Due 2016) looking from a Bourdieusian perspective at the experiences of Royal Navy and Royal Marine instructors. I have a particular interest in mentoring and coaching and have worked with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines developing these approaches in their training programmes.

Chief External Examiner PGCE/Cert Ed (Inc DET) University of Greenwich
I am a part-time PhD student. The theme of my PhD is how Royal Navy and Royal Marine instructors experience the change from specialist to instructor. The theoretical framework is influenced by the work of Bourdieu. I have used a Wengraf's biographical narrative interpretive approach to data collection to 9 individual create case studies.
