Welcome to the School of Education

Welcome to the School of Education at the University of Lincoln, where both our research and teaching are based on the belief that educational practice and theory are inextricably linked.

‌‌The School of Education is a vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment in which staff have developed national and international reputations in their areas of expertise and are committed to the advancement of knowledge and its application in all fields of education.

Current research areas within the School include: alternative and informal education, critical pedagogies, educational leadership, higher education policy, science education, technology in education, the politics of education, the sociology of education, and a range of interests in pedagogy and curriculum.

We are fully committed to developing outstanding teachers who, as soon as they enter the classroom, make a positive impact on pupils’ learning and attainment. To achieve this we work with two partners, Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance and the St George’s Academy Partnership, to offer PGCE School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programmes across a wide range of Secondary School subjects that combine professional practice with cutting-edge educational research.

We are also offering a PGCE Primary Education through the SCITT scheme with Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance. In addition the School offers a traditional Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and also a part-time Educational Doctorate (EdD). Currently we have in excess of 80 doctoral students from around the world and we are always happy to discuss new doctoral research proposals.
