"Inspiring the next generation of educators and continuing to develop active learning techniques is my goal. I currently have a Masters degree in education which I undertook whilst working in the primary school sector.”
With a varied and multi-levelled teaching career, Adele is a first-class educator who inspires confidence and determination in her students. Adele leads all of our teaching programmes here at the college, coaching students at all levels to reach and exceed their goals.
Further Education Teacher Training at UCBB is overseen by Adele Sewell, a professional Teacher Educator. Adele runs our Further Education teacher training courses, including Professional Graduate, Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), Certificate in Education, and BTEC Level 3 in Education and Training. Her strong teaching background at all levels makes her an excellent mentor for all students making their first steps into Education.
Adele’s teaching career launched in 1989 when she began working as a primary school teacher whilst working towards her Masters degree in Education. After this, Adele spent several years supply teaching at a range of schools to broaden her experience, before joining the Education Alliance as a Quality and Training Manager. Here, Adele became involved in early years education training and was a pioneer in promoting the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (EYFS).
Adele continued to follow her passion by developing her career and moved into Further Education. She began teaching foundation degrees at various colleges around the UK before taking up a post at UCBB.
Her work is underpinned strongly by research, and Adele regularly undertakes projects designed to improve her personal and academic understanding of teaching. In addition to her role at Bishop Burton, Adele is also a Senior Fellow with the HEA.
“Currently, I am involved in a project monitoring staff who undertake unseen observations. I’m the current research chair for the college, a position which enables me to promote research activity internally. My research strongly informs my work, and I enjoy the opportunity to feedback my findings and research to a broad audience by speaking at local conferences and staff training events.”
