Dr Helen Gray
I worked as teacher of ESOL and then Computer Science in primary and secondary schools. I have a PhD in Computer Science.
I worked at the Centre for evaluation and monitoring (CEM) from 2007 - 2107 and then moved to the School of Education.
I have worked on projects involving practical work in science in KS3 –KS5 and also on widening participation in Higher Education.
I am currently involved in the evaluation of an ESPRC funded project, Inclusion Matters.
