Faculty of Education Professorial Lecture Series

Dear colleague,

I am pleased to invite you to this event. To assist us with hospitality arrangements, please confirm your attendence by e-mailing partnership@mmu.ac.uk by 2 November 2012.

Thank you to everyone who attended our June lecture ‘Maladjusted Schooling Revisited – a time to re-imagine 21st Century Education?’, with Professor John Schostak.

Following a 'career' which included being a nanny, pub work, selling, travelling, and more, Professor Heather Piper became a senior social work practitioner and worked for a social services department and later a major charity in a number of child protection, mental health, and inter-agency contexts.

Life as a researcher happened more or less serendipitously when Heather was invited to work on a project focussing on inter-agency child protection practice, her 'specialism' at that time (1994/5). This initial project was quickly followed by others in South Cheshire and the North West region; many of which were multi agency funded. Heather soon caught the research bug and has latterly been found working on a number of more substantial projects.

Kind regards

Andy Jones
