She was previously a lecturer of Early Childhood Studies at Roehampton University, Director of a bespoke early years and education training company, a freelance Ofsted Inspector and EYPS Lead Assessor. Angela also taught and managed foundation degrees for six years at Carshalton College in Surrey writing programmes to support non-traditional students aiming to access academic and professional progression routes.
Angela worked for several years analysing assessment feedback, outcomes and student voice to construct ‘bridging programmes’ to support transition into academia focusing upon each academic year and level of change. Previously, Angela worked within the early years sector in a variety of teaching and practitioner roles where her passion for children’s rights, self-determination, emotional intelligence, play and reflexivity grew and were impacted upon directly during interactions with children, families and peers.
