Most recently, she has developed a course on resilience for Year 9 students which was piloted across 10 schools in the south of England. She is now working with sixth-form colleges in south and east London to understand how self-efficacy and self-regulation are developed in Year 12. In 2021, she will work with a school in east London on a DfE-funded project to develop a student leadership programme which will be aimed at students from disadvantaged backgrounds measuring its effects on academic attainment over two years.
