ANGE LEA| MA PGCE
Director of Creative learning
Ange is a qualified Drama and English teacher and has worked in Education for 20 years.
Ange spent the last 10 years working as a Senior Leader with responsibility for the Quality of Education. This included curriculum intent and implementation, the coaching and mentoring of staff at all levels and providing effective CPD opportunities for all staff.
Ange now works as a Leadership Performance Coach for Senior Leaders both nationally and internationally and is responsible for ‘all things education’ for I4YPC.
“I really enjoy visiting lots of different schools and colleges in my role at I4YPC. I love seeing what young people are doing in their learning environments and I’m always looking at ways that they can be improved.
I believe that the current curriculum – which hasn’t really changed since its introduction over 30 years ago – requires some judicious revision.
As one of the first people in education to trial ‘Innit’ in the classroom with disengaged learners, I’ve experienced the profound impact that the story, characters and songs have on young people.
‘Innit’ really does work and I’m honoured to be the Director of Creative Learning for such a worthwhile charity.
I’m also utterly excited and delighted to be at the forefront of developing a new fully comprehensive curriculum, in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.
When I’m not thinking about education, I love going to the theatre, travelling, listening to music, admiring art and looking after my plants!”
