Brief details: I have worked in a wide variety of roles during my career but all have been education-related. I have been a teacher, Head Teacher, Local Authority Adviser and Education Adviser at the DfE. I have worked for the MoD and helped to plan for the return of service children to the UK as part of the withdrawal of troops from Europe. I was an Ofsted inspector for 15 years and external examiner for the University of Hull. I have worked in the private sector helping to deliver services to support schools. I have now reduced my work commitments and wanted the chance to give something back to the education system.
