Speaker Biography

Lee Davies

Lee Davies is Deputy Chief Executive of the Institute for Learning (IfL), the professional body for teachers, tutors, trainers and others teaching or training in further education. Lee has been instrumental in the professionalisation reforms that have taken place in further education, most notably the introduction of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status and the model of professional practice introduced by IfL through which its members demonstrate they remain in good standing through continuing professional development. Lee is a strong advocate for the use of technology to support learning, both in terms of the strategies teachers and trainers adopt to harness the technologies learners own and the place of technology in individual professional learning.

Lee worked for 12 years at Highbury College in Portsmouth, starting out as a part-time plumbing lecturer in 1987. He progressed through a number of management and leadership roles at Highbury College before leaving to become District Secretary of the Thames and Solent District of the Workers’ Educational Association in 1999. Lee draws extensively on his experience of further education, adult & community learning, work-based learning and offender learning in his national leadership role at IfL, where he has worked since August 2005.
