About Gordon Baillie

An English teacher of more than twenty years, I have worked in SLT leading teaching and learning and a variety of other areas. I am an Advanced Skills Teacher in English and Assessment for Learning, supporting schools to raise attainment and improve practice. I have an MA in Teaching & Learning from the University of Chester and am currently studying for a Doctorate in Education.

I have a love for words, language and literature fuelling my desire to make a difference to young people’s lives through fostering a love for English, introducing them to the stories that shape our worlds but also giving them tools through which they can understand their own worlds and promote social justice.

On the PGCE English course, we aim to nurture teachers of English, who are passionate about the transformative nature of the subject and keen to engage with all elements of this vital teaching role.
