I Joined Keele in January 2015.  Prior to this I worked at a local Sixth Form College for 26 years, the majority of these as a senior manager.  During the 1980’s I graduated with an Honours Degree in Maths from Manchester University and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from Keele. 

Before entering the teaching profession I worked for British Aerospace in Lancashire for 4 years.  Having worked in a College where the majority of the students progress into Higher Education, I am a strong believer in the role and benefit a foundation year can offer in supporting students to fully achieve their potential.  It enables students to both “learn how to learn” as well as progress in their chosen academic field.
