Leanne has worked in Further and Higher Education for the past 13 years and is passionate about education being the key driver for success in terms of personal and social development.
Leanne currently manages the Foundation Entry (FdE), Foundation Degree (FdA) Health and Social Care and the BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care Top-Up degree courses. In addition to this, she is also the Teaching and Learning Subject Lead for her faculty.
Leanne is particularly interested in the area of disability and how, as a society, we enable people to empower their own lives as well as raising awareness and implementing equality within the world in which we live.
Prior to working in education, Leanne lived and worked in San Francisco for a number of years where she was the Aquatics Director of a charity that catered for people who were primarily blind or visually impaired, but often had additional complex disabilities.
On returning to the UK, Leanne was also the Secretary of an Autism charity that catered for young people and their families within the local area.
Leanne is also linked to another North West university where she works within the School of Education on the distance-learning PGCE course and has a keen interest in online teaching, learning and assessment.
Leanne’s research interests centre around digitalisation in education and this area forms the basis of her EdD doctoral study.
