Gulshan has extensive knowledge of data and data analysis, teaching and learning, including for SEND pupils and those in Pupil Referral Units. She is used to supporting and coaching teachers to develop and improve their teaching and delivery, both in terms of getting it to good but also to develop outstanding teaching practice. As well as providing training and facilitation in a wide range of areas, and to diverse audiences, Gulshan is an experienced lead inspector. Over her career she has worked with schools across the 3 to 19 age-range, universities, a broad range of education authorities, the police, local councils and, more recently, the health service, as well as voluntary sector organisations to provide advice, guidance, training and support for development and improvement.

Her latest education project is working with a group of schools in a London LA to improve the achievement of more able pupils.
