Tremaine Baker joined Middlesex University in September 2014, having previously been a teacher in a mainstream secondary school since September 2002.
During this time he led a series of whole school initiatives and supported the development of educational excellence across Essex in his roles as an Advanced Skills Teacher and a Specialist Leader of Education. Central to this was the provision of teacher training and the development of a blended learning approach to initial teacher education which utilised online training modules and open-source learning platforms, alongside the traditional and personal support given to trainees to support their development.
