Mr Alex Beckey


I am a Senior Lecturer in Education specialising in Physical Education. I am Course Leader for the BA (Hons) Top degree in PE, Sport and Physical Activity. I also work across the Secondary PGCE PE, Primary PGCE and Primary BA programmes.

I have worked in the secondary school sector for 17 years, teaching in and leading PE Departments in a range of schools, as well as holding other leadership and pastoral positions. I moved into Higher Education in 2019 to support teacher education across primary and secondary provision, with a focus on PE and youth sport.
