Senior Lecturer in Health Related Exercise

I have many years' experience of the health and fitness industry in relation to training and qualifications and have published several books in this area.

I have an active interest in exercise referral schemes in the region and I'm chair of the Sector Skills Councils' CPD panel.

Teaching and supervision

I am Module Leader for the placement on BA (Hons) Physical Education and Sports Coaching, Personal Training and Sport and Physical Activity for Special Populations. Both of these modules have bolt-on vocational exercise health and fitness qualifications (Personal Trainer and Exercise Referral).

I also lead on a level 4 module which has a bolt-on gym instructor qualification. 

Research interests for potential research students

I supervise projects related to workplace health which involves working with local companies to help improve the health of their workforce.
