Sarah Gordon BA Hons PGCE MA
Lecturer Early Years and Childhood
I have worked in Early years Education for the last 20 years.
My main interests are in language and communication development, having worked with NLT on projects supporting families and settings. I am also interested in how we facilitate learning for our next generation of teachers and practitioners so that they are ready and resilient to work with our complex families and children.
I have spent the last 20 years working in Early Years Education as a Teacher, Consultant, SENCO, Assistant Head SLE (Specialist Leader in Education) and Programme Lead for SCITT . I have worked across several authorities.
• Early Years
• ITT (Initial Teacher Training)
• Mentor, Coach and Tutor
