Tracey Partridge is a Senior Lecturer of Lifelong Learning, in the Department of Secondary LLTE and PE & Sport at the University of Greenwich.

Tracey is interested in dyslexia and how students are supported within the Higher Education (HE) environment, particularly on the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Lifelong Learning Sector (LLS) programme. She presently supports dyslexic students and intends to implement a small research project to study the effectiveness of the support. Tracey lectures on a range of courses in the PGCE Further Education (FE) programme and tutors both full time and distance learners.

She has a particular interest in learning theories, and coordinates the Professional Development Portfolio course as well as trainee teacher placements for students on the full time PGCE and mentors across all our Lifelong Learning programmes.

Prior to joining the university, she was a full time lecturer in Politics and Course Coordinator at Tower Hamlets College. Here, she undertook a number of mentoring roles on a range of courses as well as responsibility for coordinating Key Skills (Functional Skills) across the college. Whilst there, she also undertook training in diagnosing and supporting dyslexic students through the London Language and Literacy Unit at Southbank University, and qualified to train teachers to diagnose and support dyslexic students.

Tracey was a member of the working group, looking at English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learners with dyslexia and delivered a number of workshops, training sessions and co-authored a publication as a guide for tutors in this field.
