I started my career in education as an English teacher. I have worked as a teacher and teacher trainer in secondary, further and higher education in Japan, Malaysia and the UK. I began my career in educational management in the further education sector in 2003, specialising in standards in teaching, learning and assessment, in curriculum design and in quality assurance.
I was introduced to askit in 2014, and along with colleagues, realised askit’s potential to raise standards in teaching and learning in College, and in the FE sector in general.
askit has proved effective in developing students as independent thinkers and learners, and played a significant part in the College achieving Grade 2, Good, for the key judgement area of Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare, as noted by Ofsted in the College’s recent inspection in which it was graded Good for Overall Effectiveness and for Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare.
askit is an innovative, enquiry-based approach to teaching and learning that develops students of every subject as independent thinkers and learners. It is particularly relevant to the key judgement area of Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare in the new Common Inspection Framework and has proven impact on attainment.
