I gained Qualified Teacher Status in 1987 and began an eighteen-year career in Primary and Early Years education. During this time I was school lead for core curriculum areas, a Senior Manager and designated Lead Teacher for the Local Authority. In 2002 I completed my Master's Degree in Education and became a school mentor for Initial Teacher Training. In 2005 I joined Kingston University as a full time member of staff and began to develop a suite of courses specifically around Work-Based Learning. I became a member of the School of Education's Senior Management Group and Associate Professor with specific research interests in early years, safeguarding and child protection and interprofessional practice. In 2015 I was appointed as the Director of Learning and Teaching and achieved Senior Fellowship of the HEA. In 2019 I gained my professional Doctorate and my thesis was an opportunity to study teachers' experiences of safeguarding and child protection in the context of early years education.
