Dr Andy Noyes

Dr Andy Noyes joined the School of Education in 2001 as a Lecturer in Mathematics Education after teaching mathematics in a local secondary school.  He led the mathematics PGCE programme for several years and led University of Nottingham's highly rated PGCE Course. In addition he teaches on MA courses in Research Methods and is programme leader of the MA Learning and Teaching.  Andy’s doctoral thesis was in the sociology of mathematics education and the nature of educational transitions.  He has written in this area and also has research interest in teacher education, the sociology of education and pupil voice.

Andy’s research interests are now focused on trajectories of learners, particularly in mathematics and science at the post compulsory level. He is currently involved in a funded pilot study at the University of Nottingham exploring transition to STEM courses in higher education and was also recently awarded a large ESRC grant for the project Geographies of Mathematical Attainment and Participation. Andy has undertaken consultancy work for CfBT, CDELL and has worked with the VITAE (DfES) project team at the School of Education. He has also recently co-directed two smaller projects: a TDA funded project examining the use of video diaries as a reflective tool for professional development and an evaluation of support for school self-evaluation processes.
