Teaching School Hub CPD Lead
Emma-Jane has worked in the Education sector for over 25 years. After graduating from The University of Durham in 1996 she shared her love of the Spanish language to students of all ages in Malaga Spain.
After returning to the UK she worked in the printing industry for a short time, before returning to education, including a spell within the early years sector.
When the DfE launched The Teaching School’s Initiative in 2011, Emma-Jane was given the opportunity to support the development of a Teaching School on the North Yorkshire Coast. Teaching Schools marked a shift towards more school-centred training and development and were a pre-cursor to the Teaching School Hubs we have today.
Emma-Jane became the Lead for Scarborough Teaching Alliance, one of the few Alliances to be led by a maintained Nursery School. She was also successful in the application for Scalby School to be designated as a Teaching School in 2016.
Currently working across all schools in her current Trust role focusing on teacher professional development and Initial Teacher Training, she is also seconded to Pathfinder Teaching School Hub as the CPD lead.
Outside of school life Emma-Jane enjoys spending time with her husband, two sons and her two French Bulldogs. She is also a keen gym goer, enjoys running and watching football.
