Jane is currently Course Manager for the Primary PGCE course, a role she has had for 13 years.  During that time, the course has had three successful 'outstanding' Ofsted inspections and has been the highgest ranked primary PGCE course nationally across all routes into teaching (Good Teacher Training Guide, 2017).  Jane has responsibility for overseeing all elements of the course including Partnership with over 200 local schools and settings.  

Before coming to the Faculty, Jane taught in primary schools for 15 years and was a senior manager in a junior school in Essex. During this time she was responsible for the induction of NQTs in the school and science subject leader. She worked for Essex Local Authority as a science advisor and for the London Borough of Enfield as a support teacher for PE. Jane has been involved in teacher education since 1999, firstly at Homerton College, then following reorganisation, at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. Her teaching has focused on primary Professional Studies (including pedagogy, assessment and general professional issues) Physical Education, primary Science and Design & Technology.   Jane is particularly interested in teachers' professional development in the area of mentoring and co-ordinates the Experienced Mentors’ twilight course. She has developed two CD-roms focusing on mentor training, as part of a regional initiative. Jane has been involved in a number of Faculty-based research projects including the SKIMA project led by Dr Tim Rowland, which has developed an internationally recognised framework , the Knowledge Quartet, for identifying the mathematical content knowledge of teachers as revealed in practice. In addition, Jane was a core member of the ChAT project (Children Articulating Thinking): an internally funded project which examined the role of classroom talk in the development of Year 1 children's metacognition and self-regulation.
