Zoe graduated in law from the University of East Anglia and became increasingly interested in education and training whilst working for the civil service. Having embarked on a two year part time teaching course it was during her first year of that course that she secured a full time teaching post at the then Central Manchester College. Working primarily with 16 – 19 year olds Zoe went on to complete her PGCE at the University of Huddersfield and has subsequently spent almost half of her teaching career of over 30 years teaching English Language and Literature at GCSE and A Level. Zoe is passionate about English and her enthusiasm for the subject is infectious. Her subject and syllabus knowledge combined with her methodical attention to detail, ensures that all of her classes are constructive, dynamic and innovative.
