I am currently a visiting lecturer at the School of Education, University of Hertfordshire and as such, work with both doctoral supervisees and partake in research bids and projects.
I also conduct independent research projects with colleagues in schools. One such project is the Learning Boost Project at Longdean School in Hemel Hempstead.This project explored the impact of providing tailored e-support to a number of parents of pupils in Year 11. Would empowering the parents help boost the pupils’ eventual GCSE scores? Our findings were presented at the ResearchED conference in September 2018.
I regularly engage in the public debate around the role of parents in children’s education:
In 2016, I was invited by the Education Select Committee to their conference on The Quality and Purpose of Education in England as a chair for the panel discussion on parental engagement.
In 2018, I was invited by the Centre for Educational Economics to be a panellist at their event entitled: Parents: the Silent Education stakeholder
I regularly deliver keynote speeches and flagship talks. To book me as a speaker, please click here
