Ms Rebecca Crutchley
Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader
School of Education and Communities
I am the Programme Leader for the Early Childhood and Special Education programme.
Most of my professional career has been based in the field of primary, early childhood and special education, where I have worked as a primary school teacher, early years teacher, Deputy Head, SENCO, and early years consultant.
I have worked mainly in inner London local authorities, although my teaching career started overseas in Moscow, where I was based for 3 years, and Australia.
My doctoral study (ongoing) explores the relationship between resilience and social agency in the lives of children from forced migrant communities.
