Research Background

Elaine holds the post of Head of School (Education) at the University and is responsible for programmes such as the PGCE and the Masters in Education.

Elaine conducted her research for her PhD on newly qualified teacher induction, specifically studying if an induction programme which married peer group mentoring (where only NQTs constituted the group) and action research as the environment, ethos and methods for induction could meet beginning teachers’ professional needs and concerns more adequately than other versions of provision available.

Elaine qualified as a teacher by undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Canterbury Christ Church University after reading History at the University of Kent. A teacher for over twenty years, she has experience across the full range of Key Stages having taught pupils from Reception age to Year 13 students.
