Background Information

Sue is a qualified teacher and nursery nurse.  She has been working with children and young people throughout the whole of her professional career.


She started her teaching career in 1998 after qualifying from King Alfred's University. 


She has spent her career working in different schools and nurseries within West Sussex, Spain and Bath and more recently at Bath College and Barnardo's in Bristol.


Sue has worked as a deputy manager for 2 years at a nursery in Bath where she used her extensive knowledge and skills to offer quality childcare experiences for all that attended.


Within schools Sue has had many roles including course leader and D&T co-ordinator. She is passionate in creating an environment where learning and knowledge can be shared and absorbed.


Sue is also passionate about safeguarding and specialised in teaching this at Bath College for 9 years to Early Years Practitioners.


This passion in safeguarding led Sue to work for Barnardo's for 2 years where she delivered training to the night time economy both within Bristol and throughout South Gloucestershire. 


Sue empowered this workforce to spot the signs of child sexual exploitation and to voice any concerns they may have had.


Sue believes that training should not just be a way to gain new skills and knowledge but it should also be a valuable opportunity to meet and interact with other practitioners; building relationships, sharing good practise and supporting each other through what can be a challenging time.
