Dr Christine Hough is a lecturer in the School of Social Work, Care and Community. She is the module leader for the core, work-based modules on each year of the degree programme - Children Schools and Families BA Hons. She also teaches the Data Analysis module that is part of the Educational Doctorate (EdDoc) programme. She is currently leading the research project, ReachingOut, which is a critical evaluation of a rehabilitation mentoring model for BAME Muslim ex-offenders, located in the North West. This is in partnership with the former Lancashire Probation Trust and Arooj, a third sector organisation. She has also completed the primary research work for the Evaluation of the Navajo Equality and Diversity training courses, (funded by Lancashire County Council Primary Care Trust) which has a specific focus on the extent to which the training courses helped to raise levels of understanding of and empathy for LGBT individuals and groups in the workplace. Christine also contributed part of her doctoral research findings to the consultation document that preceded the Field Report on Poverty, The Foundation Years: Preventing Poor Children becoming Poor Adults (HMG:2010).
In 2006 Christine took up a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of Cumbria and was awarded her doctorate in September 2010. Her thesis is entitled: “Every Child Matters: a small scale inquiry into practice and policy”. During this time she held Research Associateships at the Universities of Cumbria and Lancaster.
She was a graduate secondary school teacher for over twenty years, during which time she taught Physical Education and Mathematics, led PE departments and was a senior pastoral manager.
After gaining her MBA in 2001 Christine trained to be an OFSTED inspector and went on to conduct some 45 inspections in secondary schools throughout the country. She also worked as a freelance educational consultant on behalf of the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) for five years, facilitating professional development seminars and workshops for teachers and school managers throughout the UK and overseas.
Christine had an article published in The Conversation in November 2017 about the UK’s prison and probation service entitled ‘Cracks are growing in the UK's prison and probation service’.
