I currently fulfil a role covering teaching and learning within the School of Applied Sciences. I have extensive experience of course development, quality assurance and teaching over the last 20 odd years. I have a particular interest in widening participation and the challenges facing students from various backgrounds. I am currently working with colleagues from across a range of Yorkshire institutions as part of Yorkshire Universities’ project tackling “hard to reach students”. The fundamental aim is to encourage more students from under-represented groups (specifically BME and white working class males) into Higher Education.
