Sophie qualified to teach through the GITEP program in 2006 and has been working at Thomas Keble School in Gloucestershire since then. As a post-threshold practitioner, Sophie has a wealth of classroom experience to draw upon when supporting NQTs through what can be a very challenging year.
Sophie has been a GITEP mentor for many years and is committed to providing the highest levels of support and challenge to the newest members of the profession. Sophie is also a senior examiner with OCR and regularly runs departmental training on the mark schemes. Last year Sophie completed a prestigious teaching fellowship with the Historical Association which culminated with her producing a resource available for use by teachers across the country.
