I’ve been teaching theatre now for over eighteen years and would not change my job for anything. Working on the HND in Performing Arts allows me to focus my attention on the individuals in my class. If these same students had gone to a larger university, they would have been lost in the sea of faces. My moto is you’re a name not a number. My students grow in confidence, talent and gain a sense of who they are.

This year we are working in collaboration with Coventry University on a show about gender equality. This will be premiered at Coventry University as part of a performance festival.
