    Currently, I am the module lead for four Undergraduate modules at both levels 4 and 6 and one Post Graduate module. These involve different modes of teaching and learning including; didactic, group work, practical sessions and the active involvement of various stakeholders. This role includes giving both formative and summative feedback to the students which can be via both tutorials and/or written feedback. I also supervise students who are undertaking their undergraduate dissertations.

    In my role as Placement Lead for the Social Work programme I am responsible for the development and delivery of the high-quality placements we are known for providing our students. The feedback from this year’s students is that 98% rated their placement experience as either good or very good. This work involves liaising with our students, our placement providers and internal teams, PEU and Faculty Finance. This work involves a considerable amount of external liaison with our providers, via phone email and face to face.
