I’m an executive member of the national association for advisers in personal and social education, and have worked for a number of years as a senior PSHE Adviser in a local authority. My key concerns in this role were teenage pregnancy, obesity, wellbeing and pupil involvement. I have worked across all age ranges on the development of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education.
I was previously the Healthy Schools manager for a consortium of three Inner London boroughs, and in that role worked with colleagues across the health, education and social care sectors.
As a teacher and a senior manager in primary schools, I instigated a changing pedagogy through a whole school approach to PSHE, RE and Special Needs. I also promoted a view of schools being at the centre of their communities – and as such a key agency for the development of wellbeing for children, young people and their families.
I have collaborated with Gary on the refinement of the 3Di model over a period of years, and have recent personal and professional experience of the model in action.
I am currently working on a book about three dimensions of intelligence and adolescents.
