Career overview

Anita has a BSc (Hons) degree in Textile Design and a PGCE in Secondary Education from NTU.

Beginning her NTU career in 2016 as a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Art and Design where she led on the implementation of the SCALE-UP approach on the Fashion Management course, Anita is now an Educational Developer within the Centre for Academic Development and Quality (CADQ). In this role she applies her knowledge of educational theory and practice developed not only through her six years as an academic but honed during her ten years spent teaching in Nottingham City secondary education / alternative provision and further education environments responsively developing inclusive learning, teaching and assessment activities.

During her time as an academic she sought out ways to create life–changing experiences for her students such as the delivery of an innovative approach to collaborative learning - a COIL (collaborative online international learning) module teaching NTU students in a global online classroom synchronously with those from three Chinese HEI’s.  As Level 4 leader for her course and a personal tutor across all year groups Anita has experience of the use of personal tutoring and innovative interventions to engage our hard-to-reach students and those at risk of non- progression due to engagement and attendance. She believes in working holistically with students to encourage active learning in a supported and inclusive environment. Her experiences as a teacher and academic have led to her passion for social mobility and Success for All.
