Ellie joined the Institute of Education at Worcester in 2013, as Senior Lecturer in Religious Education working within the Institute of Education. Her expertise and interest lies in Religion and Values Education, Professional Studies, School Leadership and Classroom Observation.

In her on-going work, Ellie is currently contributing to a book on Inclusive Education with her colleagues in the Centre for Education and Inclusion at University of Worcester. In addition, her work with REQM (RE Quality Mark) involves supervising teachers in post as they undertake action research in their subject area.

Ellie is the Course Leader for BA Education Studies and her work at the University of Worcester involves lecturing within Education Studies, MA in Religion and Values and Initial Teacher Training (ITE). The overview of different degrees is immensely interesting and one informs the other when preparing to work with students.

Prior to her role at the University of Worcester, Ellie held a post of Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Northampton for four years. There she was Head of Year 3 BA QTS and supported the trainee teachers as they prepared for their first year as qualified teachers.

The preparation for this role came from Ellie’s earlier career in Primary Education which culminated in headship of a village primary school for 5 years. The school was placed in special measures by OfSTED during her first term, thus ensuing an upward climb to leave the school as ‘Good’ when she moved into lecturing in Higher Education.
