Tim is a lecturer in primary education, and he holds master's degrees in English Studies and Education. He received a scholarship to undertake a PhD in Education at Kingston University and is researching the role of unconscious processing in learners' creative writing.
Prior to this, he worked in primary schools in London for over twenty years in a variety of roles, including teaching, senior leadership, consultancy and Local Authority positions. Since his involvement in the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority’s Creativity in the Curriculum project in 2004, he has been fascinated by creative thinking.
Tim teaches three modules for London Met's Primary Education (two-year accelerated degree) BA (Hons):
- Teachers, Learners and Schools in the 21st Century
- From Elementary Schooling to 'Good' Primary Practice
- Global Challenges: Inclusion in Practice
The modules all combine an understanding of how the educational system has been shaped by historical forces with an exploration of contemporary issues. Ultimately, they suggest models for an education system fit to meet the demands of the future.
