Research Overview:

My research has a number of strands that are all underpinned by a concern for social justice in access to, and the outcomes of, education. My research focuses on the role of theoretical knowledge in qualifications; pathways between the sectors of tertiary education and between tertiary education and the labour market; relations between colleges and universities; and, tertiary education policy. My current research includes educational and labour market pathways; baccalaureate degrees in colleges; and, marketisation and privatisation in vocational education and the college sector.
