Neil Gilbride

Lecturer in Education


I have a multidisciplinary professional and academic background stretching over 12 years. I use this to research new ways of exploring school leadership and organisational life.


I am a multidisciplinary academic with a wide range of professional and research experience. I teach across MA Educational Leadership, Education and Inclusive Education programmes. My research explores how developmental psychology can support leaders and organisations. As Business Development Lead, I work across sectors to maximize the School of Education and Humanities' impact in Gloucestershire and beyond.
