I have been teaching since 1997. I have taught in different places like:
- community education centres
I have had training via CIty & Guilds 730 Level Part 1 & 2. Later I went on to qualify for Post Graduate Certificate of Education (Post Compulsory Education and Training).
My BSL qualification is Level 3. I am currently teaching Level 1 and 2 with the IBSL curriculum, an awarding body.
I have been to ABSLTA’s 25th Anniversary celebration. Since then I have had loads of ideas for ABSLTA. Later in 2018 I was nominated as a committee member at the Cardiff AGM. I was accepted and elected. My role was to be the researcher. I love BSL linguistics and also continuing professional development which is very important to me. I enjoy working as a team, it is important to support each other.My vision for ABSLTA is that I want it to become stronger and bigger.
I have another job as a Specialist Study Skills Tutor at the University of South Wales. I have been supporting some deaf students with their PGCE studies.
