Teaching Practice Coordinator in Education (History Specialism)

Mohammed Amin

I am an experienced educator, having worked in a range of educational settings. My experiences as a secondary Humanities teacher, specialising in History have been within a range of different schools; urban settings in idyllic Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, and the Royal Borough of Greenwich. I have also worked in majority EAL, inner city schools in socially deprived areas in Leicester.

My research interest are centred on the underachievement of Ethnic Minority / BAME students in secondary schools, investigating the construction of identity, ambition and the impact of racism. I have a particular interest in the attainment of British Pakistani and British Bangladeshi students.

I am also interested in transferable pedagogies from Elite sports coaching and how these coaching methods may be used to improve academic attainment over a 2-3 year period. This research seeks to offer alternative ways of teaching.
