Read More…A little introduction about myself, I have worked delivering outdoor education for over 25 years with experience facilitating and delivering high end outdoor practical learning. I am a qualified Primary Teacher with vast experience of working with vulnerable and SEND groups. I worked for many years in outdoor education and Crisis Intervention Care. To complement my outdoor skills, I am also a Nurture and Thrive Practitioner for both Primary and Adolescent assessment. More recently I taught for several years as an advisory teacher in a Pupil Referral Unit linking national curriculum and outdoor education helping to improve attainment before joining the team at Trewern.
Read More…I have worked in outdoor education for over 15 years, and am Trewern’s field studies specialist. I have a passion for geography and ecology, and have a great deal of experience working with exam groups in particular. I started working for Trewern as a freelance field studies teacher, and since then I have worked hard to acquire the skills and qualifications to be able to lead all of the sessions that we offer safely, building on the experience of a lifetime in the outdoors. I love to combine my environmental and earth science knowledge with our outdoor activities and hope to foster passion and understanding in the young people we work with. I think that Trewern offers a great space for young people to develop and grow, and it’s important to give them that opportunity through supportive, positive experiences, with just the right amount of adventure.

I am a qualified Primary Teacher and spent 14 years in the classroom teaching in a number of schools and undertaking roles including Deputy Head Teacher, Senior Teacher, Teacher Governor, First Aider and Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) before moving to teach in the outdoors. I grew up in Essex and was introduced to the outdoors by my parents, through various school trips and residential visits, by undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at school and through joining the Girl Guides. I am enthusiastic and passionate about outdoor education and get a real sense of enjoyment from sharing my passions with others. I have worked with a wide variety of groups of differing ages and abilities. I am extremely proud to work at Trewern Outdoor Education Centre as it enables me to combine my love of the outdoors with the opportunity to share this with others.
