Caroline Smart BSc (Hons), PGCE

Senior Lecturer


I am a Senior Lecturer in Science Education and the Course Leader for the BSc (Hons) Science with Education and QTS degree. I also work as part of a wider science team on the PGCE Science course.


I began working at Sheffield Hallam University in the Sheffield Institute of Education in 2017 and have led the BSc (Hons) Science with Education and QTS degree since 2020. I began my career as a science teacher working in secondary schools in South Yorkshire. During this time I gained experience of teaching across KS3-5, my specialism is Physics, however I have experience teaching all three sciences. Whilst based in school I was a TLR holder and eventually Head of Science. I teach on both the BSc (Hons) Science with Education and QTS degree and PGCE Science courses.
