As an RE Adviser Stephen provides training and consultancy internationally and supports the work of RE in two local authorities through SACRE consultancy and school-focused work. He writes for and edits RE Today Services’ RE curriculum series, Questions in RE, and contributes to a range of our other publications.
Before working for RE Today Services Stephen was a secondary Head of RE for many years, and an Advanced Skills Teacher. He was Chair of his local SACRE for nine years and actively participated in the development of its locally agreed syllabus and non-statutory guidance, as well as being involved in training teachers in its implementation. His AST post included working with schools in all aspects of teaching and learning, including creative task setting, active learning in A-level RS, developing ICT, particularly through video conferencing and innovative use of tablet PCs, and promoting spiritual development.
He has been involved in a project with Oxford University applying the findings of neuroscience to teaching and learning, and the link between RE and well-being is a continuing interest.
