I have been at the Open University since 1986, and in the Faculty since 1991.
During this time I gained considerable experience across a broad spectrum of support roles (Course Team Assistant, Research Secretary and Secretary to the Sub-Deans, PA to the Dean). I was Faculty Services Manager and Programme Office Coordinator for Social Work.
I currently provide support to the Director Business Development and the Partnerships Manager alongside several Module Teams and the Youth Justice Team.
Jenny Simpson, Head of Social Work (England), as well as students and staff at the OU are involved in an exciting development in relation to social work education. Mend the Gap is a model for the effective involvement of people who are at the receiving end of services, together with those who provide professional support. Read more about Mend the Gap here
