My work entails me lecturing and tutoring the Beginning Teachers on the Secondary MFL PGCE course. The languages I have taught are French, German and Spanish. I observe the trainees teaching and liase with the subject mentor in the placement schools.In 2005, I was appointed as an Institute Partnership Manager and Professional studies Coordinator which provides an opportunity to get the "bigger picture" in terms of the trainees' experiences. As a part time member of staff, i have been able to put to good use my OFSTED inspection training when working with Local Education schools and as an independent consultant for Languages. Since 2003,I have been involved in an exciting and innovative European funded Comenius project "Creative dialogues" - the use of Storylines in Modern Foreign Languages.My own research interest for the PhD is a case study of the experiences of Black Caribbean British pupils in MFL- those "bucking the trend" in terms of their achievement.
