My role

I have responsibility for widening access and providing support for adults throughout their student journey. My community adult education background is a key influence on my theory and practice. Recent research writing includes exploring the impact of adult community outreach on access to higher education.

I lead the Communities and Partnerships (C&P) team, which engages with adults from diverse communities where Higher Education is not the norm. We have a particular interest in linking widening participation activity with the broader goal of providing a learning environment that engenders dialogue, questioning and debate. Prior to a career in adult education I taught Government and Politics at HE level and have maintained a keen interest in this area.
