Mrs Eluned Pickup is a senior teaching fellow within Education at the University of Southampton with responsibility for tutoring a number of trainees across the PGCE programme.

Providing trainees with outstanding knowledge, skills and guidance is essential if we are to ensure future generations of passionate and talented teachers

Eluned holds a Batchelor of arts, honours degree from the university of Wales, Aberystwyth. She has a PGCE and holds the professional qualification of an advanced skills teacher (AST) and the national professional qualification for headship ( NPQH).

Eluned is first and foremost a teacher with almost 30 years’ experience of working within the secondary school sector who has a passion for enabling young people to become lifelong learners and facilitating that by supporting teachers and trainees to be the best they possibly can be.

Currently her work with trainees at Southampton university involves providing support, guidance and skills to enable them to develop their classroom practice.

She started her teaching career in a welsh speaking secondary school and was a head of department there for 7 years before moving to the south of England.  She has since worked at a further 3 secondary schools and held the role of assistant head, deputy and acting head teacher.  The core of her work has always been 2 pronged:

  1. Ensuring we have the best possible teaching staff in our schools and that we cherish and provide them with on- going professional development
  2. That we understand how students / young people work and ensure that they are supported in any way possible to enable learning to take place

Eluned’s work at the university is to provide tutorial support to trainees and ensure that the QTS and PGCE criteria are met. She also works with schools on a consultancy basis providing support with aspects relating to pupil welfare and teaching and learning
