I teach on a range of modules across the BA (Hons), Apprenticeship and MA qualifying Social Work courses. My key areas of interest are mental health, mental capacity, social work law, ethics and values. I have taken the lead in the development of our Social Work Apprenticeship programme and I'm undertaking research into the use of this model of professional education.
I am currently undertaking doctoral research into the use of apprenticeship as a model for social work education.
