I have had wide and successful leadership experience in education in the UK and overseas, including the UAE and Qatar, predominantly in special needs. I have held the UK National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) since 2006. I completed my training for School Inspection (Ofsted training) with SERCO in 2016, and have been employed as an inspector for evaluations in the Northern Emirates for CfBT.
I was a headteacher for a special needs centre in Dubai and have worked for the Ministry of Education there and as a consultant.
