Mrs Jan Ashbridge

Graduating from our Lancaster campus in 1991, I worked in schools as an Early Years Specialist and then for Cumbria Local Authority as a Senior Advisory Teacher before coming to work at the University of Cumbria in 2007. I am currently the Principal Lecturer having oversight of the PGCE Primary across the University and School Direct programmes. My highlight of this academic year was presenting the ‘Primary School of the Year’ at the Lancaster Guardian Education Awards.
I focus on Phonics and English, as one of my key areas of interest is in young children and early literacy. Apart from literacy, my other passion is walking and enjoying the amazing landscapes and wildlife around Lancaster and the Lakes.
