Early Years AOLE

I have been a Primary Teacher specialising in the Early Years and the Foundation Phase since I was appointed to the role of Early Years Advisory Teacher for the County of Swansea in 1996. I worked as Head of Foundation Phase at a large Primary school. More recently I was seconded to Carmarthenshire Local Education Authority to write the 2013 ‘Early Years Review’. I then took up the post of Training and Support Officer for the Foundation Phase throughout Carmarthenshire. I am a Registered Estyn Inspector for non-maintained settings and a LA Governor at QE High School and the Confucius Institute.  I joined the University in 2014.
