Dr Charmaine Brown

Dr Charmaine Angella Brown is based in London, UK but was born in Kingston, Jamaica. 

My teaching journey started in 1988 with the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) and continued as Education Manager at the Peckham Literacy Centre ‘The Bookplace’.  

Since 2002, I have been teaching in HE. I am currently a senior university lecturer in initial teacher education at the University of Greenwich and participate in a range of equality initiatives which is applied in my professional role as Judicial Office holder for the Ministry of Justice sitting on  the First Tier of Social Security and Child Services Tribunals in England, Scotland and Wales and Employment Tribunal in England and Wales.
