Teacher Biographies

Diane Green

Diane Green - Course Teacher
I am a chartered biologist, graduating at honours level in zoology in 1966 and obtaining a first class teaching diploma in 1967, both at the University College of Wales, Bangor. My teaching career has been mainly in tertiary colleges where I have managed life science departments and delivered A level and G.C.S.E. programmes and Access to Nursing. 

I have been involved with Alternative Training for about fifteen years, mainly as a distance-learning tutor but also as an editor of the Anatomy and Physiology Course. About ten years ago, the course needed a major re-write because when it was originally devised, some of the most difficult topics were in the first unit and one of the textbooks was rather too scientific. Since this major modification, it has been a popular course and no further changes have been made, apart from page reference changes as new editions of the two textbooks are introduced.
I enjoy my work with Alternative Training and although not an alternative practitioner myself, am a firm believer in alternative therapies and the holistic approach to healing. It never ceases to amaze me how intricate and beautiful our bodies are at all levels of function and it is one of my greatest joys to share this with students as the A&P Course unfolds. Over the years, I have found the students to be extremely hardworking and motivated. I like to think that by following the A & P programme, they obtain a very accurate and scientific basis on which to build their particular doctrine.
Having now retired from full-time lecturing, I enjoy input into a number of A&P programmes but still find time to pursue my hobbies and interests which include hill walking, swimming, gardening, playing the piano and pipe-organ
