Simon Renshaw – Deputy Director of the Institute, with responsibility for the Teaching School Hub
Simon Renshaw has been a teacher since 2002 and has a passion for professional learning with improving children’s outcomes at its core.
He has a strong affinity with the local area as he grew up in Leicester and has worked across four schools within the city and county as a teacher and leader. His interest in educational research led him to author several journal articles on teaching, learning, curriculum and assessment.
Simon has been involved in Initial Teacher Training since 2007, and a Lead Subject Tutor for the Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT since its inception. He contributed to the pilot project of the Early Career Framework (ECF) in 2019 and was instrumental in establishing the ECF delivery for Leicester and Leicestershire in association with Teach First.
Simon is pleased to continue to support and collaborate on the educational development of both teachers and young people through The Mead Institute.
