About me

I work in the post-qualifying (CPD) team within the social work section of the School of Social Science. I am involved in designing and delivering the Certificate in Child Welfare and Protection, and the Module in Professional Supervision, as well as a range of short courses developed to meet the needs of practitioners. In 2014 In conjunction with Terres des Hommes(TdH) I worked alongside staff from TdH and the University of Tirana to develop a supervision module for child protection workers in Albania and Kosovo.

I am External Examiner on the Postgraduate Certificate in Securing Children's Futures: Good Practice in Permanence Planning and Family Placement which is delivered by Adoption and Fostering Alliance (AFA) Scotland ( University of Strathclyde).

I was part of the team which developed Key Capabilities in Child Care and Protection (2006).

I am a registered social worker, qualifying in 1991. My practice background in child welfare and protection spanned statutory and voluntary sectors.
