Interests : I joined the NCETM in November 2012 as Director for Secondary. In recent years, I have been working at a national level for the GTC, TDA and most recently the Teaching Agency. This has included work on the Teacher Learning Academy, national CPD strategy and improving ITT quality. Before this I worked as a mathematics consultant and advisory teacher for Barking and Dagenham and Blackburn with Darwen local authorities. Previous to this, I was a Head of Maths and SCITT tutor in Chelmsford in Essex, having started my teaching career at Belper School in Derbyshire.

I am particularly interested in working with schools and partnerships of schools as they seek to develop professional learning communities that effectively support high quality teaching and learning in mathematics. I am also interested in the development of mathematics cultures in the classroom, which help pupils become confident practitioners of mathematics and appreciate the diverse history and applications of the subject.
