In 2014 I was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship.



My project was based upon the theme of ‘Helping Britain's young, socially excluded to achieve in schools through global alternative or supplementary education’. As part of this action research project, I spent six weeks visiting community-based educators, academics, charities and self-funded organisations across Denmark, Sweden (Scandinavia), United States (New York, New Orleans), St Lucia (Caribbean) and Guyana (South America). This work was deceminated through report, presentation, community lectures and teacher trade union dialogues.
