Organiser

School of Education and Childhood Studies

In the School of Education and Childhood Studies, we offer a dynamic environment for the study and research of issues relating to childhood and education in its broadest sense, from aspects relating to (young) children’s learning and development, BME, gender, special needs, (cyber)bullying and mental health, to pedagogy and teaching and learning in post-16 and HE settings.

Current research projects include collaborative work with local charities and councils on projects to do with young careleavers, cyberbullying, social and emotional aspects in relation to learning in schools and early years settings.

We host a programme of seminars throughout the year and an annual conference.
