UK QUalified

Teaching Drama, Production Arts, and Theatre at GCSE and BTEC since 2004. International education (IB and IGCSE) since 2012.

I am currently IB Coordinator and teacher of Theatre & TOK at Dulwich College Beijing

I have been a Programme Leader for BTEC Production Arts, Assistant Head of Arts (Drama), and subject leader for Drama.

I have worked in UK state school with Outstanding rating, Tanglin Trust School, Singapore, and Canadian Academy, Kobe.

I hold a PGDE, an MA in Theatre, and QTS.

ISTA

ISTA (International Schools Theatre Association) is a brilliant collective of passionate theatre experts, teachers and students. They run energising festivals each year for young people to learn and meet new friends from around the world. They are also the exclusive provider of IB DP Theatre Category 1, 2 & 3 workshops.

 

I am proud to work with ISTA as an artist and workshop leader, and proud to bring my own students across the globe to experience their festivals.

IB

I am a DP Coordinator and an enthusiastic advocate of International Baccalaureate education. Working for IBO, I am an examination team leader for Diploma Programme (DP) Theatre and am a member of the examination standardisation team, as well as an experienced educator in IB MYP and DP Theatre. I'm on the review team planning and shaping the next iteration of DP Theatre, coming in 2021. I'd be happy to discuss with you how I can collaborate in your school to promote IB-aligned teaching and learning.

Consulting

Industrial Education has a stranglehold over most of the world's education systems, stifling generations of children in their creativity and capacity to engage with learning.

I am an experienced IB-aligned pedagogical leader who can collaborate with  and coach teachers across whole schools and any subject.

I am currently researching what components are needed in future education systems, collaborating with other educators to drive the desire for change. I would love to know what has worked for you, and to discuss the spectrum of possibilities available as we enter the fourth revolution of education.
