Jon joined Oxford Brookes University following a teaching career in both Primary and Secondary Education.
Having initially undertaken an Undergraduate Degree in the Psychology of Education (University of Wales), he completed the Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Westminster Institute of Education.
During the first few years of Teaching, Jon completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Educational Studies and MSc Education at the University of Oxford. Associated research involved investigating the impact of introducing a strategic approach to teaching and learning which incorporated reconceptualisations of effective practice in light of psychological perspectives, applied meta-cognition and neuroscience. The aim of the research was to investigate meta-cognitive development and thinking in younger learners following explicit intervention and instruction.
During his mainstream educational experiences, Jon developed an interest in supporting pupils with additional learning needs. Subsequently he spent time working in a therapeutic residential school catering for pupils who had experienced severe emotional trauma due to the accumulation of adverse experiences in infancy and early childhood. Jon then joined the Local Authority as a Behavioural Support Teacher, a role which involved visiting schools across the age range and working with a variety of professionals.
Prior to joining Oxford Brookes University, Jon spent time as a Deputy Head Teacher of an Independent Secondary Special School which specialises in meeting the needs of a diverse group of pupils who primarily have needs associated with complex educational needs, communication difficulties and challenging behaviours.
Jon is Subject Coordinator for Education Studies (Single and Combined Honours link here) and Education Studies: Special Educational Needs/ Disabilities and Inclusion (SENDI link here) and Liaison Manager for the Oxford Brookes University and SEBDA SEMH Masters Accreditation collaboration see here
Jon is a registered Doctoral student at the University exploring the role of compassion in Education.
