Sarah Phillips


Course Leader HOW College Redditch

Children and Families

Sarah teaches on the Foundation Degree in Early Years. Her background is as a Primary school teacher with an early years speciality.  Having taught all years from reception to year 4 in the UK and the Channel Islands, she undertook additional early years qualifications and became an early years mentor teacher for Worcestershire County Council, a role she really enjoyed. It gave her the opportunity to see and share the excellent early years practice across the county. 

After taking on the role of a primary deputy head teacher for 10 years, she achieved her National Professional Qualification for Headship. This was followed by a slight change of direction and the move to her current position as an early years lecturer. She now enjoys training and supporting those who wish to work with the next generation of young people.
