I am interested in the following research areas:
Educational transition and progression
I have undertaken a number of research projects into the transition between primary and secondary school, further education to higher education and higher education to work. This has included exploring the so-called vocational-academic divide and the impact of the credential landscape on learners in the UK.
Although a broad topic, research into lifelong learning remains relatively limited. In particular I am interested in longitudinal studies to explore the lived experiences of learners.
I am interested in employability as a lifelong process and the different approaches to researching this topic. With the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in England, there is a greater focus on employability, for which empirical data is critical.
As part of research supported by the Society for Research into Higher Education, I have investigated the progression of former apprentices into higher education.
