Lawrence Stone
Lawrence StoneTrustee and Training Lead
“Lawrence Stone has been retired from work for about 10 years, having spent a long career in public service. He spent the first third of his career as a teacher of English in a Further Education College. In the middle part of his career, he became responsible for teacher training and staff development at his College and was also seconded to Anglia Polytechnic University to teach on their Certificate in Education programme. In the last third, he became Head of Education at Havering College, mainly running their teacher training programmes and, when he took early retirement, remained with Greenwich University for a couple of years as a part-time lecturer. He and his wife, Lisa, moved to Herne Bay from south Essex three years ago. He hopes that the skills he developed over his career in the areas of coaching, mentoring, direct training and trainer training generally will be useful to the Trust.
