Lisa Rogers

Trust Leader for Personal, Social and Health Education

BA (Hons.) Applied Theological Studies, The University of Birmingham / Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Secondary Religious Studies, Newman College (The University of Leicester)

“My role within the trust is to enable students to be ready for the wider world and to be tolerant and respectful citizens. I also enjoy working collaboratively across Trust to enable colleagues to share good practice and give the very best to our students.”

I am the Director of Learning for Ethics at The de Ferrers Academy and Trust Leader for PSHE. I have lived in Sutton Coldfield all my life and I went to school there.  I studied Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethics and Government and Politics at A Level and went on to do a degree in Applied Theological Studies at The University of Birmingham.

I always wanted to be a teacher but did not study for my PGCE straight away. Working in other sectors helped me develop my skills in the working world and made me realise how much I wanted to teach. Religious Studies for me has always been an important subject and one that fellow RS teachers will agree, we have to defend. RS promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of individuals and of groups and communities. The challenges you face being an RS teacher and fighting for your subject has naturally led to me to relish the role of being Trust Leader for PSHE. Again, this vitally important subject is often dismissed by some. PSHE allows pupils the opportunity to develop their self-confidence and awareness and to understand the world they live in as individuals. Our role within the Trust is to enable students to be ready for the wider world and to be tolerant and respectful citizens.
