Jennie worked for a total of 7 years in FE colleges, where she taught ESOL, numeracy and literacy within learning support teams.

How can I support Learning Developers?

Jennie would be pleased to support learning developers who are looking to gain their professional recognition awards. She would be happy to support/share good practice with anyone who wants to use more TEL in their teaching, particularly around webinars and student response systems. She also has experience of organising national conferences and regional events through membership of various working groups.
