I have been a qualified social worker for over 27 years predominantly working with adults. I have always considered that my area of speciality is with working with older people and my career pathway has supported this.
During the course of my work I have attained management qualifications to PG DMS level and have been a manager in adult fieldwork social work for the past 12 years. I also have experience of managing residential homes and a day centre al with the older people client group.
I have been an active practice educator since attaining the Practice Teacher Award in 1995 and thoroughly enjoy working with students to encourage and develop their learning. I have recently completed the PSW development course and am committed to develop best practice within social work.
