Dr Wilson Muleya

School Head of Department

About

I am currently the Head of Department of Social Work and Social Care. In this role, I am accountable for and have strategic oversight of student experience including student progression and retention, facilitating and continually improving the quality of teaching in the department to ensure the curriculum engages with research and practice and meets academic benchmarks and regulatory professional body requirements.

I also have overall responsibility for recruitment, management, performance and development appraisal of academic staff in the department.

My research interests and teaching expertise centre on theory application in practice in the work practitioners undertake with children and their families, particularly on exploring the effectiveness of different intervention approaches. I am equally interested in strategic approaches to the adaptation of new technologies in learning and teaching in higher education.

Over the years I have worked with a number of international partners to develop opportunities to enable and support students to undertake short international practice learning placements.

I am a registered social worker with the HCPC, and an external examiner at other universities.
