After completing his BA in Politics at the University of Kent, Andy went on to live and work in Arequipa, Peru. There he taught English as a Second Language in a variety of private institutes and universities and worked as a Project Manager for a small charity working on education and social care.
Returning to the UK to do an MA at Kent, Andy went on to do his PhD in Political and Social Thought under the supervision of Stefan Rossbach and Iain MacKenzie. Andy's PhD examines the politics of higher education, paying particular attention to my own practices as a teacher influenced by critical pedagogy and anarchist approaches to education. He is due to finish his PhD by September 2017.
Andy joined Birmingham City University as a Lecturer in Education Studies in April 2017. As of September 2017 he will be teaching on a variety of modules as part of the new BA in Education Studies.
