Home / About / Academic staff profiles / Teacher Training and Education / Alexandra Brown


I completed my teacher training in 2016 in secondary PE and since then have specialised in alternative provision for post-16 students teaching a range of subjects including maths, English and various vocational qualifications, before becoming a Lecturer at the University of Sunderland.

Teaching and supervision

I work across various modules on both Primary Education and Education Studies marking, teaching and supervising dissertation students. I am also a University mentor for those students on school experience as part of their course. I also work with the MA team, teaching international students and supporting them to carry out action research as one of their modules.


As my background is alternative provision, I enjoy researching further into this area looking at alternative approaches to engaging learning and the processes that go alongside this. I also have researched and published around assessment and the impact this can have on students.

Although my undergraduate degree and PGCE specialise in PE, I also have a range of experience working with vulnerable learners and focused my MA thesis on working with disengaged students in the post 16 sector.
