    About Gary Saunders

    I graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2004 with a BA (Hons.) in Law and Criminology. I then studied for an MSc in Social Research Methods at Nottingham Trent University and my dissertation examined the impact of incarceration on prisoners’ families. I have been a teacher in HE and FE for over 10 years and completed my PGDE in 2011 at the University of Lincoln. I am currently in the latter stages of writing up my Ph.D thesis, which critically examines alternative forms of education.
