David Goodger

Lecturer in Education

Teacher Education

I teach as a member of the English and professional studies teams, following a varied career which included working as a senior leader in primary schools and for local authority advisory teams.


I taught in primary schools in South Wales including as a senior leader in my last position. My career includes working for local authority advisory services and sports governance before joining the university. I teach on English and professional studies. I am keen to support student teachers developing their pedagogical understanding and to challenge attainment gaps created by deprivation.
