About

Nichola has worked at Sheffield Hallam University since 2006 when she was first appointed as an Associate Lecturer. Nichola has been a full-time lecturer since December 2010.

She has been involved in developing a number of new modules as part of the re-validated Criminology programme, particularly in relation to employability, through simulation and placements, enhancing the ability of graduates to secure appropriate employment in related sectors.

Nichola is particularly interested in Criminal Justice System organisations, functions, structures and the development of partnerships to support aims and objectives. She has experience of working in and with a variety of voluntary and statutory organisation in the Criminal Justice System, such as Probation, the Prison Service and Drug Treatment services. This means that she is well placed to relate to students the realities and constraints of the CJS in addition to helping to challenge and shape future delivery. Her recent research interests include older prisoners. Her recently completed MSc included a dissertation about the experiences of first time older prisoners. She coordinates the subject group's CrimPAL scheme (Peer Assisted Learning) which recruits and trains second and third year students to support first year students to make the transition to university.
