PhD projects

Under the leadership of Simon Asquith, the Department of Professional Education carries out a wide range of research activity connected to the professional sphere of education.

His own research centres on the positioning and identity of headteachers and school leaders as they lead their schools but has also become increasingly involved in teacher education. Simon’s work with schools, universities and other providers as impacted on and framed by shifting government policy has provided the impetus for this work and has led to interest in ways in which professionals and academics from different contexts can work together in system change for schools and teacher education.
