ESRC PhD Student, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am a qualified teacher (QTLS) and I have worked for over 10 years in adult and community learning, teaching maths and English. I have also worked as a teacher educator in teaching maths. Through working with unemployed adults, many with mild learning difficulties and mental health problems, I have become increasingly aware of and concerned about the growing social disadvantages experienced by people with learning difficulties in an environment of increasing pressure on individual employability. My PhD is exploring the experiences of unemployment, employment and employability of people with mild learning difficulties, in the context of the changing nature of work and changes to social security. I have an MA in Research Methods (Social Policy) from the University of Nottingham, an MBA from London Business School, both with distinction, and a BA(Hons) in Economics and Politics from the University of Leeds.
My research involves exploring the experiences of unemployment, employment and employability of people with mild learning difficulties.
