Our Research Team is comprised of staff from the Faculty of Education and Children’s Services.

As well as teaching both postgraduate and undergraduate modules, we undertake research in the areas of Creativity, Marginalisation, Leadership and Management, Educational Practice, and Early Years.

Members of this group actively enhance their expertise through a variety of approaches and practices, while providing supervision and guidance for our doctoral research students.
