I am currently director of a small group of nurseries in Berkshire and Director of Teaching and Learning at Brunel University, specialising in leadership and management. My EdD research brings these areas together and is focused on developing a new understanding of leadership in the sector. After submission I anticipate focusing impact work on leadership development, complimented by other ongoing research projects. Most notably exploring the use of video stimulated reflection for leadership development and creating a network of leaders to collaboratively support one another.
As well as this, I am a proud (and exhausted) dad of 2 boys under 2, this has made my motivation for improving the ECEC sector all the more urgent and opened my eyes even wider to the challenging reality of developing those in their precious early years.
I look forward to continuing to live, learn and develop all things early years and help to make the sector a better place for children and staff to be.
