Candidate Details


I am an experienced teacher, initially of Humanities with SEN leadership experience, having taught Geography and RS to A level/IB standard early in my teaching career and then branching out to work in the field of English as an Additional Language and ESOL. This has included teaching at International Colleges overseas and working for the Spanish Government to Head up the Humanities Department of the only Spanish Government funded bilingual College in London in the UK.
Since 2000, most my work has been focused in the EAL/ESOL field. I worked for Plymouth City Council for 14 years as the Secondary/Post 16 Lead Teacher for the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team, eventually becoming the Secondary Consultant for English as an Additional Language for Plymouth City Council. I gained a deep insight into the education of students who do not have English as a first language, across the Secondary/post 16 Curriculum.
This was a holistic multi agency post which focused on raising self-esteem, motivation and creating appropriate educational opportunities for students new to the UK in order they fully engage in learning. My work involved designing packages of support across the Curriculum Areas to provide access to learning through more creative approaches to teaching and learning, specifically scaffolded to be more inclusive for our growing bilingual population. I successfully led a team for many years and deployed a group of teachers and bilingual teaching assistants across the Plymouth Academies, working on packages of support, designed and monitored by myself in response to requests from Academies. As responsible to the local authority, all packages of support required careful planning and necessitated measurable outcomes in terms of raised achievement. These support packages varied from putting systems into place with Senior Management to support learners new to the UK, setting up ESOL as an alternative to English, differentiation of Schemes of work to celebrate diversity and promote different approaches to teaching and learning in different subject areas, supporting the literacy development of the intermediate learners (identified as a cohort of under achievers) through schemes like guided reading and writing and cooperative learning. I led much of the secondary training on raising achievement of the EAL cohort across the City at this time.
Following this, I taught for a year at On Track Education Services, gaining experience in teaching pupils with severe Special Educational Needs and Emotional and Behavioral issues who were unable to be educated in mainstream Schools/Colleges. Here, I taught Functional Skills in all subject areas which was a fantastic learning opportunity . Much of this was individualized learning on an outreach basis and developing positive relationships and support for these students who had been unable to engage with mainstream. I taught Functional Skills in all areas including Math’s and ICT with excellent results.
For the last three years, I have worked at City College Plymouth as a lecturer in ESOL, Functional Skills, and, up until the end of 2016 A level Geography!
