Mrs Claire Porter

Director of WSTP & Assistant Headteacher

I am a science teacher with 16 years teaching experience, I have been head of faculty and a senior leader in a number of schools across Hampshire, Dorset and Hertfordshire. My interests are in developing great teachers and the neuroscience of learning. I am also currently studying for my EdD with a focus on how students learn. I have a passion for learning new skills and reading around subjects; discussing with my colleagues and debating issues. I studied my undergraduate degree in Belfast before embarking on the move to England and my Masters in Education at Cambridge University. I loved my teacher training course and working with James and Ali at WSTP we aim to offer an excellent curriculum that is both personalised and evidence based driven.

Mr J Mosley

Assistant Director

I am a history teacher with 9 years of teaching experience. I have had had experience in pastoral roles, coordinator of careers and KS3 coordinator overseeing Geography, History and Religious studies. I love my subject and I am passionate about history but also love learning more about teaching and learning and the latest research on how to improve student’s learning. My role as Assistant Director of WSTP is a combination of what I enjoy most about teaching; helping to mentor the next generation of teachers and seeing them develop into great educators. The WSTP team are so amazing and supportive and a great team to work with.

Mrs Alison Foster

WSTP Office Manager

I Have worked in Education for nearly 15 years and have obtained vast knowledge of different areas of education behind the scenes. I have worked within Exams, reception, cover, admissions and safeguarding to name a few. These all enable me to have a great understanding and I look forward to supporting all the trainees with WSTP on their journey into teaching. I love being in the Education environment and now being part of the WSTP team.
