Brief biography

As Head of Teaching and Learning Enhancement, Jane’s experience of working within the Further Education sector includes teaching in the English Department at Shrewsbury College, developing provision as Programme Leader for Education, focusing on staff development and training as an Advanced Practitioner, and working in partnership with colleagues at Edge Hill University as the Course Leader for initial teacher education. 

Investment by the College in promoting a coaching culture was reflected in Jane’s appointment as an Advanced Learning Coach, a role which provided opportunities to embark on research projects, lead conference workshops and contribute to published work.  The successful introduction of curriculum-based Professional Learning Communities at Shrewsbury College and development of a team of Learning Coaches to support professional development has facilitated the implementation of Peer Review and Lesson Study processes, both of which draw on the principles of coaching and mentoring to inform professional dialogue.
