Dr Lynette Shotton

Senior Lecturer

Department: Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing

I started my adult nursing career in 1995 and later qualified as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse, practising in the Health Visiting field. I have been working in higher education since 2008, joining Northumbria University in 2015.

Here at Northumbria University I have contributed to a range of provision in the Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, including successful programme leadership.

Between January 2020 and July 2021 I was Director of Access and Paricipation for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences., where I led and collaborated on a range of faculty and university wide projects to improve access, participation and outcomes for under-represented students. From July 2021 onwards I assumed the position of Head of Subject in the Department of Social Work, Education and Community Well-being. I have also been accepted on the the Strategic Advisory Group for Teaching and Learning with Advance HE, commencing in September 2021.

My research interests focus on widening participation and the experiences of care experienced students in the education sysytem, using narrative methodology and Bourdieu's theory of practice.
