Rose spent the early part of her career in nursing. Following the birth of her two sons and inspired by their learning and development, she decided to upon a career in early years education. She gained a BSc(Hons) Degree in Psychology from the Open University and an MA in Education Studies from the University of Northumbria.
In 1999 Rose decided on a change of career direction, focusing on workforce development with in early years. She has worked for local authorities at a strategic level developing the early years workforce. She has also worked in partnership with universities in the region to develop new qualifications for the children’s workforce at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Her specialist area is leadership and management.
Rose has been involved in lecturing on early years programmes on a part-time basis for several years, however, the increasing demands of her full-time role meant that she had less time available to continue with this. Realising how important this element of her work was to her, she decided to pursue a full time career in higher education.
Rose is currently studying towards her Education Doctorate the focus of which is upon early years leadership and the influence this has upon improving outcomes for disadvantaged children.
Rose and Jayne Tidd have developed the MA Applied Education Leadership in conjunction with Hartlepool Education Partnership to address the learning and development needs of their middle to senior leaders in education.
