Professor of the History of Religion and Education


Higher Education


My professional career in religious education began with several years as a Primary school teacher. Since then I have been a Diocesan RE Adviser, a head of RS in a sixth form college, and a lecturer in Higher Education. I joined the University of Worcester in 2008 to run the masters in education and to develop doctoral programmes. My principal research interests lie in the history of religious education from the nineteenth century to the present, but I have also published on other aspects of the history of religion, as well as the philosophy of religious education and studies into the effects of A-level RS. I am editor of one of the leading journals supporting religious education research, the Journal of Beliefs and Values.
