Avtar Athwall

After a long teaching career at secondary and higher education levels, I retired in 2009 from Wolverhampton University.  My teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate courses was supported by active research programmes. My experience includes heading the Information System Division, consultancy, planning and running external short courses and being an external academic assessor.

I am a Town councillor, Trustee of Kesgrave Library User Group and an active member of my local Patient Participation Group. Previous voluntary activities have included several years of working with a national charity, Trustee of a community-based advice centre, teaching of Punjabi language classes at Ipswich Gurdwara and fundraising. This year I have hosted school visits to the Gurdwara arranged by EEFA and have joined the Suffolk SACRE.
