Sian Templeton

Senior Lecturer in Education Studies


I’m a qualified Educational Psychologist and have worked in a variety Educational settings including schools and specialist provision. I’m interested in supporting the needs of vulnerable groups.


Psychology has been a passion of mine for many years. I was able to pursue this through studying and then working as an Educational Psychologist for over a decade. Through this work I found that I could make a positive impact on the lives of children, young people and their families. I now enjoy sharing that passion with students on our course through the exploration of how education settings and professionals can make a positive impact on outcomes and how an understanding of psychology can support this.
