Grace has a background in education, having worked in a variety of schools and a sixth form College. In the course of her career, she has taught 3 year olds to adults, though most of her experience has been with the 14-19 age range. She has been a head teacher twice, the second time as interim head of a very large school where she was responsible for 2000 students and over 200 staff.
Throughout her career Grace has been involved in work beyond the classroom. She has been a member of the national executive of a teachers’ union, has worked on the development of GCSE and A Levels in History, and on teacher appraisal and performance management. She was commissioned to write a practical guide to classroom observation, ‘Observing Teachers at Work’ as part of an education management series.
Grace now works as a freelance inspector for Ofsted and is able to draw on the experience to benefit schools and colleges with which she works. She also tutors and assesses trainee teachers in a number of subjects, principally humanities, economics and business studies. As a governor of John Ruskin College, Grace took a particular interest in the attainment and progress of students from more disadvantaged backgrounds.
