Celebrating transformational teaching

Joe Cornmell

LIPA Sixth Form College

The Award for FE Lecturer of the Year

Liverpool, Merseyside

In the short time since joining LIPA Sixth Form College in September 2017, Joe has made significant impact on his students.

Having gained his PGCE in 2015, Joe is now studying towards a PGCert in Dyscalculia as a means of learning how to plan teaching and learning which helps students with maths learning difficulties make progress in maths. A reflective, caring and thorough professional, Joe creates the safest of environments from the outset for his students to learn in.

Joe’s ethos as a maths teacher is to create enthusiasm, and to help students – and their parents – believe that they can achieve. Whilst Joe himself has very high expectations of his students, his focus is very much on ensuring the students have high expectations of themselves.
