Whilst qualifying, she worked extensively with young people who had become disengaged with education. Later, she achieved an MEd in Professional Development with a focus on reflective practice and the use of technology in learning. Cathie now teaches across a range of programmes in the College from learning opportunities through to degree level, where she particularly enjoys supporting dissertations.
