Meet your lecturers

Hannah Crooks
Programme Leader, Early Childhood Studies


Katie Simpson
Programme Leader, Working with Children, Young People and Families

I enjoy the parts of my course where we work as a group as it allows us to learn from each other. I’d like to work with and support young people and children through a career in teaching or social work.

Transition to university study

The way that you will study for your degree can be quite different from how you've previously studied at school. The Leeds Trinity Learning Hub has developed LTNew, a short online module, to help you get a head start when you start your studies.

LTNew includes resources on time management and organisation, reading effectively and writing academically. It also discusses other changes that are likely to occur as you transition into a university environment while introducing you to some of the people who can support your skills development at Leeds Trinity.
