Biography

Having worked in a variety of roles in the Childhood Practice sector over many years, Craig has extensive experience of both policy and practice.

Having completed a BA(Hons) degree in Childhood and Youth Studies, he then progressed on to the MEd in Childhood Practice at the University of Glasgow.

He is currently halfway through a PhD in Education, exploring collaborative practice between children's services.

Research interests

Craig's current project seeks to explore the complexities involved in inter-agency collaboration. Adopting a place-based approach to systems development,  a series of case-studies set within the Children's Neighbourhoods Scotland project aims to identify some of the faciltators and barriers to effective collaborative practice.

Utilising Social Network Analysis, Cultural Historical Activity Theory, and underpinned by Systems Perspectives, the primary aim of the project is in the co-creation of knowledge between the participants and researcher.
