We are delighted to announce that the Rev’d Dr Simon Stocks, our Tutor for Biblical Studies and Director of Reader Training, has achieved the laudable status of a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. This recognition follows assessment of his professional practice in higher education, and in particular of his support, management and mentoring of others in relation to teaching and learning.

Simon’s status as Senior Fellow reflects his sustained effectiveness as a tutor throughout his seven years at the college. It also endorses the college’s alignment with the values of the HEA, including commitment to the professional development of its staff, fostering dynamic approaches to teaching and learning, and promoting professional values in all aspects of its operations.

Principal Alan Gregory commented “As someone who has benefited from Simon’s wisdom and example as a teacher, I am especially pleased that the HEA have recognized his gifts and experience in this way. The college is proud to offer students teaching of this quality.”
