# Teaching Experience

## Teaching Qualifications

I was awarded the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in April 2021, in recognition of my completion of Loughborough University's *Academic Professional Apprenticeship* programme.

I was awarded the status of Associate of the Higher Education Academy in November 2010, whilst I was a graduate student, in recognition of my completion of the University of Oxford's *Developing Learning and Teaching* programme.
