Subject Lead for History, Faculty of Education and Humanities, The University of Northampton
Within the History department work has been undertaken to develop the Personal Tutor (PT) scheme over the past three years using Year Tutors which includes a combination of data analysis and staff/student interaction. This has improved the student experience of the PT system at their subject level. Drew has worked with Anna Swales and Kate Coulson to investigate the operation of the PAT scheme (as part of the “First Year Experience” and “Enhancing Student Success” projects) across the institution and to draw up proposals for a new scheme for possible implementation in 2018.
Drew studied history at Northampton and gained his PhD here in 2006. He has authored several academic history articles and three books on the history of crime and punishment in the 18th and 19th centuries. He is now working towards his application to become a Senior Fellow of the HEA.
