University Nutrition Lecturer

Sport and Exercise Nutrition

Lecturing has always been a passion of mine. As I say elsewhere on the site, as a 22 year old I gave my first ever lecture to a group of more than 70 final year students, only 1 year my junior, and from there I was hooked. I did my City and Guilds level 1 teaching qualification and then went on to spend two years doing my Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (Pg DTLLS). What a mouthful! I’d love to do more lecturing but I’ve not found a job that doesn’t require me to either a) do marking or b) engage in statistical analysis i.e. research! I can only hope!


I currently lecture at the University of Derby and have been since the 2010/11 academic year. I currently lead on the Principles of Nutrition module as well as supervising final year research projects.
