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 will be Head of Subject in the Department of Social Work, Education and Community Well-being.

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.
