Congratulations to Part Time PhD Student Peter Simcock for his appointment as Senior Lecturer in Social Work at Birmingham City University!

Part Time PhD Student Peter Simcock has recently been appointed as Senior Lecturer in Social Work at Birmingham City University.  Peter will start in this new role in January 2018 and is looking forward to the position after working for eight years at Staffordshire University.  Peter’s PhD research is exploring the lived experiences of older deafblind people.  He is therefore delighted to be working for Birmingham City University’s Social Work Department, which offers both Social Work Programmes and the course in Rehabilitation for Visual Impairment, with a top up year relating to complex needs associated with conditions including deafblindness.  The timing of this new post also coincides with Sense, the National Charity for Deafblind people, opening a new centre in Birmingham; Peter’s research has been supported by Sense, so he is excited by the possibility of further collaborative projects.
