Mrs Christine Budhan-Mills


I am proud to be a Senior Lecturer in Education at Kingston, and a LGBTQIA+ BAME role model. I work across several programmes in the School of Education lecturing in maths, phonics, LGBTQIA+ inclusion to Early Years, BA and PGCE students. I also facilitate seminars on educational - Perspectives in Policy, Practice and Professionalism for Teachers. My main role within this department is as the Mentor Lead working closely with the Partnership Lead to deliver high quality training across a range of settings. I have extensive experience in mentoring, coaching and developing meaningful collaborations. I work hard at building and creating networks and welcome collaborating to further strengthen mentor CPD or Kingston University to ultimately benefit students.

I have almost 20 years of primary school teaching experience both globally, online and locally across South London. I have worked in a variety of primary settings ranging from an infant school, an 8-school federation, trusts and academies. I have worked in a Teaching School and I have over 10 years experience of working as a Senior Leader.

I have worked alongside Global Cities.Inc, a programme of Bloomberg Philanthropies, as the first primary UK educator. I have trialled and evaluated this online e-learning platform, known as Global Scholars. I linked my MA research to evaluating the effectiveness of teaching online. 

I am passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion. I am currently involved in a specialist inclusion and social justice research group in addition to an early years research group, exploring rights and responsibilities in a range of areas with pupils and staff in educational settings. 

Other areas of interest and expertise include: leadership and management, mental health awareness and promoting LGBTQ+ awareness. I am always keen to support anyone who wants to network and support education in all its forms.
