I have a passion for working in Childhood Practice, & working here at the Open University empowers me to share this with others.

Jill Robertson
Early Childhood Associate Lecturer


With specialism in childhood ethnography & anthropology of education, I have been teaching for the Open University since 2007. The quality of student support offered at the OU is remarkable. Like students, many tutors also manage work & family simultaneously. Delivering online lectures with the bustle of young family around is amazing!

Dr Sadaf Rizvi
Childhood and Youth Associate lecturer


I studied for my own degree with the Open University – I know how tough it can be but also how amazing! My best memories are working with my study buddies with a baby on my knee.

Kate Breeze
Staff Tutor and Associate Lecturer in Childhood and Youth


Having worked in education all my career, a common factor in the success of educational institutes is the relationship between students & teachers/tutors. I was struck by the importance of this relationship and the role of the tutor at the Open University and was eventually delighted to be appointed as a tutor.

Dr Pete Bradshaw
Masters in Education Associate Lecturer


I understand the demands of balancing academic study with work as I am also studying for a PhD with the Open University looking at elite female athletes & their experiences of motherhood. I do practice what I preach & am a keen runner as well as enjoying water & snow sports.

Candice Lingam-Willgoss
Sport and Fitness Lecturer


In the last 15 years with the Open University, I've had the chance to teach a range of students from different backgrounds, ages & different experiences. OU has shaped my teaching effectively. I've learnt & experienced how cutting edge latest online technology can be used for distance learning. Proud to be part of the OU community!

Dr Renu Bhandari
Primary Education Associate Lecturer


My proper name is Peter Grove but everyone calls me Rocky. A former primary teacher, who tutors in WELS and STEM, for relaxation I’m a scuba diver, enjoy travelling to distant lands & am a member of the Bahá'í Faith. A piece of trivia, I’ve provided support for Open University students from Antarctica.

Peter Grove (Rocky)
Primary Education Associate Lecturer


I joined the Open University in 2018. After watching those late night OU TV broadcasts with curious interest as a child, it’s a wonderful experience to be part of such a historic institution. I’m just waiting for my slot on the telly. I love to travel & find out what people are eating!

Primary Education Associate Lecturer
