Dr Andrew Pearce

Foundation Director

“I have taught in a number of schools across the north of England and for much of that time, I was a Head of Humanities, Religious Education and PSHCE. I have been a senior lecturer at Leeds Trinity University for twelve years, specialising in teacher professional learning. I currently teach in a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and when not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and pursuing a number of interests and hobbies including walking, film, music and military history. As a Welshman who has enjoyed living and working in Yorkshire for over thirty years, I occasionally have a conflicted sense of identity, but when it comes to watching sports, my Welsh origins usually come to the fore. I shortly have a book coming out through Peter Lang Publishers entitled: Beacons of Hope: Lessons we can learn from resilient teachers.
