Tina Page is a lecturer who teaches postgraduates on the Initial Teacher Training programmes at the University of Hull.

She is also the academic lead for two partner school-centred initial teacher training institutions.

Tina was a member of the design team for an EU-funded Masters programme for teachers held in Norway, Belgium, and Portugal.

This, coupled with wide ranging experience in modern language teaching, has led to a keen interest in comparative education research.
