Karen’s background spans over 20 years in secondary and tertiary education, teaching an array of subjects. After completing an equine degree in 2000, she pursued a career as a secondary science teacher in Swindon. She then went back to her passion for horses and spent 15 years teaching in a large FE college, as an equine lecturer and also specialised in functional skills. In her spare time, she likes to compete her horses, in all disciplines and spend time with her family in the great outdoors. She joined the Haddon team in February 2020 and is hoping to share her wealth of knowledge and experience, with the apprenticeship students and make maths and English accessible and relevant.
