I gained my PSTA in 2014 while working as teaching Head of a rural Primary in North Yorkshire, and since then have become a co-opted Governor in a Federation of four schools feeding in to a local Secondary school. I am Governor with responsibility for Primary and also the link Governor for one of those Primary schools – which coincidentally both my children attended some years ago!
As my ‘day job’ I lead a Royal Society of Chemistry team of Education Coordinators based across the North and Midlands of England. We seek to support teachers according to need, including Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) hubs in the region. All our support to teachers is free at the point of access as part of our charitable aims.
