With over 30 yrs in the Early Childhood field, Allyson was a Lecturer with TAFE SA from 2000-2019. She has facilitated training and assessment for students studying Certificate II Community Services to Certificate III and Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. Her teaching passions are cultural diversity, inclusion, child development and child protection.
A late starter at University, she completed her B.Ed (AVWL) in 2012 and the spark for Higher Education learning was ignited. A chance opportunity saw Allyson complete the Master of Education (career education), and her interest in research began.
Participating in the TAFE SA Leadership program in 2015 provided the opportunity to see the bigger picture of VET in South Australia, and she was a founding member of the TAFE SA Action research group, with her paper from this research being published in the International journal of Training Research in 2018.
Beginning her PhD in Education studies in 2018, she aims to redefine supportive learning environments for VET students, and change VET policy along the way.
