Following a B.Sc. (Hons) in Psychology and M.Sc. in Psychological Research Methods at the University of Plymouth, I taught Research Methods and Statistics for 4 years also at the University of Plymouth. Again at Plymouth, I gained an ESRC Ph.D. CASE studentship, in the field of Developmental and Educational Psychology – thesis titled ‘The development of vocational interests and abilities in secondary school aged children’. I started work at Down Syndrome Education International (DSEI) as a research psychologist in 2008. Linked to this I have been an honorary research fellow in Psychology at the University of Portsmouth since 2009.
