I am a Senior Fellow of Advance HE, and a qualified teacher with a PGCE PCET.

I am Programme Lead for the Fellowships Programme, which is accredited by Advance HE to recognise teaching staff in Higher Education. I teach learning and teaching theory, practice and reflection to colleagues from across the university, whether academic or professional services staff. I also teach Inclusive Education across Associate Fellow, Fellow and Senior Fellow programme.

As part of the Inclusive Education project, I co-construct professional learning with Schools, create asynchronous resources, and run a CPD workshop series on inclusive education, available to all staff in Cardiff University.


I have a background working with disabled people and am a qualified Rehabilitation Officer for Blind and Partially-sighted people. I worked in special educational needs in compulsory phase, and taught in mainstream and specialist further education, before returning to university to complete a PGCE (post-compulsory), a Masters in Social Science Research Methods and a PhD in Inclusive Education.

Previously a Lecturer in Education and PGCE PCET in Cardiff University in the School of Social Sciences, I led the Fellowship Programme, NTF and CATE awards, and inclusion and personal tutoring workstreams in Cardiff Met University before returning to the Cardiff University Learning and Teaching Academy.
