Pie Corbett and I have been working together on a 5 term project (6 full days) for the Wroxham Transformative Learning Alliance. It is called, ‘The Arts of Storytelling’ and incorporates Art, Music, Dance and Drama. We will be starting the project again in 2017. This year 35 schools have been involved, with 70 teachers each day.
I am owner of 'Inspiring Professional Development and School Improvement'. Prior to this, I was President of the International Drama Theatre and Education Association (IDEA) from 2010-13 and was Chair of National Drama (UK's leading professional association of Drama Teachers and Theatre Educators) for more than a decade (until November 2014). I was a Local Authority Arts Adviser for 11 years (from 2000) and a School Improvement Partner and Ofsted Inspector concurrently. I also led a successful local authority Music Service through change, from 2000 to 2002.
I am a professional writer and was a BBC Education Series Consultant and Scriptwriter. I also have published several books for teachers on teaching across the curriculum using 'Drama for Learning'.
I currently work internationally and in the UK, where I am the owner of 'Inspiring Professional Development and School Improvement', providing courses and conferences for schools on many subjects and issues. I also continue to develop and deliver my own drama courses in schools across the UK and abroad, as well as being an invited lecturer at several universities.
