Teaching and Learning

Postgraduate Taught

Programme development – I have developed 3 major programmes since 2012 – Veterinary Professional Studies, Veterinary Physiotherapy and Veterinary Business management and there are currently over 900 students enrolled across these programmes.
Module development – within each of the programmes I have developed many of the core and equine modules and continue to support the development of new modules from their conception to approval through our Faculty Academic Quality and Standards Subcommittee.
All modules follow the principles of alternate PGT provision for full-time professionals and allow flexible entrance into PGT and life-long learning.
I am the director of all the programmes in the Veterinary Postgraduate Unit and oversee all of the academic processes and procedures from module approvals and modifications and Recognition of Prior Learning to educational development. All of the programmes have part or full accreditation with the Professional Bodies; the PgCertVet Prof Studies being professionally accredited as the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and a major route to Advanced Practitioner Status and the Veterinary Physiotherapy programme accredited with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Practice (ACPAT)

Undergraduate Teaching

I also have a large role in the undergraduate curriculum starting from my role as Head of the Equine Division (and The Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital) where I am ultimately responsible for all aspects of equine related teaching in the Veterinary Curriculum.
I also contribute personally to the BVSc undergraduate curriculum in years 2 – 5 including many lectures, interactive seminars, clinical rotation teaching and assessment duties.
