Meet our tutors
Teaching and Learning Manager David Lenton studied Education Studies with English Language and Literature at Liverpool John Moores University, before completing his PGCE with Manchester Metropolitan University. He has taught at numerous colleges as well as being part of Liverpool Hope University's steering committee and focus group for their teacher training programmes.
David recently joined the college and is really enjoying teaching here: "It's great to be able to teach the fundamentals of teaching to new practitioners. Our curriculum doesn’t just encompass the content of the specification, we also integrate emerging and current practice within the education industry because of the links between curriculum and teaching and learning."
