Ruth has nearly 30 years’ teaching experience in secondary and further education. She is passionate about education, making learning accessible to all and particularly enjoys exploring new ideas within and beyond the classroom.
From 2004 until 2015, Ruth lectured in English at City of Bristol College, delivering GCSE and A level English and previously taught adults on the Access to Higher Education. Ruth enjoys building on her teaching experience to work with local communities, shaping projects and developing new concepts that inevitably emerge through each collaboration.
Since 2016, Ruth has been working in partnership with Southmead Development Trust, Bristol Old Vic and the local community to create the Southmead soap opera, Meadows to Meaders, telling the true stories of people who have lived, worked and grown up on one of Bristol’s largest interwar council estates.
