About me

I am currently a Lecturer in Initial Teacher Education at the University of Derby. Prior to this, I have held positions as a Lecturer in ITE, an Advanced Practitioner, a Teaching and Learning Coach, Programme Manager and Lecturer in Sport across three General Further Education Colleges in the Midlands.

I am also a Board Member and Trustee for the Education and Training Foundation, with an additional responsibility for Chairing the Society for Education and Training Management Board.

The more I know about education, the more I realise that I don’t know. I have come to realise the importance of remaining open minded and thinking critically about the ideologies that exist in education. I tend to question everything, not because I am negative, but because I am in search of truth. You’ll see this throughout my blog posts. If you think what I say is wrong, then please show me conflicting evidence. I change my mind a lot, so am open to seeing things from a different perspective.

Some of my credentials include:

I am always looking to connect, share my ideas and acquire new ideas, so please get in touch and let’s help one another develop.

I am looking for a day programme. let me know. Paul
