Burwell Village College
Portfolio of experience, skills and knowledge
At Burwell Village College ( Primary), I have been a classroom practitioner in all key stages and am particularly experienced with KS2 learners. My leadership experience has been as a member of the Senior Management Team and as a Phase Leader, of both years 3-4 and Years 5-6.
A particular strength of mine is supporting trainee teachers and NQTs. I have mentored both newly qualified teachers in Key Stage 2 and training teachers , working in close partnership with the University of Cambridge.
Alongside my ITT work at Burwell, I am also a Partnership Tutor and Personal Tutor at the Faculty of Education at University of Cambridge on the Primary PGCE course. I support a number of trainees during their course, both at the Faculty and on their school placements. I am responsible for visiting the trainees on placements and working with them and the school to set targets to promote the trainees progress throughout the course. Previously, I have also taught on the Primary Science PGCE course at the Faculty.
