Mr Tom Boronski

Senior Lecturer

Cass School of Education and Communities, Education Studies

    Most of my teaching career has been spent in the tertiary sector where I taught on a variety of courses including A Levels (sociology, politics and psychology), and on vocational courses such as GNVQ Health and Social Care. I was Curriculum Manager (Sociology) at Palmer’s College from 1999-2005, and have been a link tutor/mentor for PGCE students in association with the Institute of Education (1995-2005).

    I joined UEL initially as an hourly paid lecturer in the Cass School of Education, and in 2008 I became a permanent member of staff teaching on a variety of programmes including Citizenship, Education and Community Development, Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies. I was Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Education Studies between 2010 and 2015.
