Senior Lecturer In Education


About

I taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Spain and then in Poland for a number of years. Following that, I taught in a Further and Higher Education (FHE) college in Birmingham between 1997 and 2009. In 2009 I was appointed as Lecturer in Education Studies at Cardiff Metropolitan University where I taught across a range of undergraduate modules on the B.A (Hons) programmes, and I also supervised doctoral students. In 2014 I took up my present position as Senior Lecturer in Education Studies here at Sheffield Hallam University.

My teaching specialises in the sociology of post-compulsory education, although I also teach more broadly across modules related to education policy, philosophy of education and the history of education.

Teaching

Department of Education, Childhood and Inclusion

Social Sciences and Arts

My research interests lie in the area of young people’s educational and occupational decision-making, and of how these processes are mediated through lived experiences of ‘race’, class and gender.
