About Dr Luke Jones

After leaving Chester in 1994 and completing my post-graduate teacher training at Cardiff I gained employment as a secondary PE teacher at Christleton High School, before progressing to Head of Department - a post I held for five years. I then left secondary education to join Liverpool John Moores University and manage the key stage 2/3 degree programme.

This experience provided a good grounding for my current post where I have responsibility for teaching PE and physical development to students on a range of teacher training courses - be it at early years, primary or secondary level.
