I am the Head of Department of Social Work and Social Care and Associate Professor in Social Work. In my 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.
Over the years I have led on a number of new course developments including the BA (Hons) Social Work delivered in Gibraltar (with partners), the BA (Hons) Social Work Integrated Degree Apprenticeship coproduced in partnership with London employers, and the establishment of our regional teaching partnership (Developing Together Social Work Teaching Partnership).
My research interests and teaching expertise centre on theory application in practice 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. 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 SWE, and an external examiner at other universities.
