I joined the PGCE English team in September 2006 having taught for 27 years in secondary schools in Dorset, North Somerset and Somerset, most recently at Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar where I was Second in the English Faculty and ITT Co-ordinator. I was a member of the QCA Creativity in English Working Party; trialled and wrote schemes of work for their publication Giving a Voice: speaking and listening activities for Key Stage Three and in May 2006 took part in a review of A Level English Literature standards. Since joining the Graduate School of Education, I have worked closely with the other PGCE English Lecturers to continue to develop this rigorous, creative, successful course.
