Head of Accredited Training

by | Uncategorized

I joined the BDA in July 2023 as the Head of Accredited Training and am currently  developing and expanding the BDA’s accredited training services, including short courses, practical teacher training and professional level programmes.

I am a specialist teacher, adviser and assessor for learners with a variety of specific learning differences (SpLD). I previously worked in Higher Education as the manager of a Needs Assessment Centre, a dyslexia adviser and study skills tutor. I have also been a lecturer in special educational needs and inclusion, inclusive and assistive technology, and dyslexia.

I have worked in a variety of contexts, including prison education, mental health services and higher education. I have specific research interests in neurodiversity and social responses to difference, technology for inclusion and the impact of working memory vulnerabilities.

Having gained a dyslexia diagnosis myself, I am a passionate advocate for neurodiversity and the belief that everyone can thrive in school, work and life when their differences are recognised, valued and accepted.
