Mick Waters, Professor of Education, University of Wolverhampton
Mick has been a teacher, Headteacher, Director of Education and was Director of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) at the time that the National Curriculum was introduced into schools.
Professor Mick Waters is an Honorary Fellow of the College of Teachers and he supports several educational causes. He is a patron of the Children’s University which offers a range of learning opportunities beyond the school environment and of SAPERE, which promotes Philosophy for Children as a route to learning. Mick is also a patron of the Curriculum Foundation which seeks to promote a voice for the power and potential of the whole curriculum; he currently works with schools in the West Midlands in raising standards.
Mick believes that every child should have a moment; he is passionate about improving life chances for pupils and enjoys asking adults to look at learning through the eyes of a pupil.
Mick understands and supports the role of governors and can help us to understand the questions we should be asking of our schools, in the best interests of our children across Buckinghamshire.
