I taught academic and vocational Business Studies courses and related subjects for twenty years in four secondary schools across south Wales, the last eleven years as Head of Department. I have had experience of teaching within Key Stages 3,4 and 5 and thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom. I have had experience of mentoring PGCE Business Studies trainees over the years and found this to be an extremely rewarding aspect of my role as a teacher.   

In addition to my academic role, I was the school’s KS2/KS3 Transition Co-ordinator for eight years and this involved liaising with Head Teachers and other staff in cluster primaries, planning for ‘taster’ activities and setting pupils in mixed ability form groupings. I have also served as a Teacher Governor and been an external marker for GCSE and Advanced Level Business Studies for AQA and WJEC. I have always had an interest in teaching and learning and have delivered INSET around that theme to colleagues and staff in feeder primary schools.
