Dr. David Kitchener David has been appointed as a University Learning and Teaching Fellow with responsibility for exploring approaches to meeting the needs of an increasingly diverse student body. He has worked in secondary education, run a Pupil Referral Unit, taught life skills in a special school and managed Skills for Life and adult education provision in a further education college. Within the further education college, he taught a variety of subjects including research methodologies, textual analysis and approaches to literacy on franchised BA (Hons) programmes for the universities of Liverpool Hope and Sheffield plus teacher education for The University of Huddersfield.

David is an active researcher and has worked closely recently with The Open University investigating the new 14+ Diplomas, had several papers published and is a book reviewer for the National Association of Special Educational Needs. His PhD examined inclusive practices within the post-compulsory sector following the 1996 Tomlinson Report, Inclusive Education, a text whose ethos still informs his approaches to teaching and learning.
