I have many years of experience in post-16 education. I've managed and taught in secondary schools, further and higher education, and served at home and abroad as an education and training officer in the Royal Army Educational Corps.
More recently, I have worked as a Quality Manager. Duties included managing the self-assessment and business improvement planning process, undertaking observations of teaching, learning and assessment. Ofsted planning remains central.
I also worked nationally, with the Education and Training Foundation, to promote and develop outstanding teaching, learning and assessment.
