Candice has taught in Further and Higher Education since 1992, predominantly as a lecturer in English and Linguistics. She has carried out research in a variety of educational settings, and has several recent and forthcoming publications in the areas of education and literacy studies.
Before coming to UCLan in 2013, Candice worked as a Senior Researcher at Lancaster University. Her research has included projects in a range of educational settings, including schools, Further Education Colleges, and universities. She has also carried out research with people who are homeless, looking at how education can provide routes into work, and how people who are homeless use literacy in their often turbulent lives. Candice is currently leading a large AHRC-funded project Stories to Connect With: disadvantaged children creating ‘phygital’ community artefacts to share their life-narratives of resilience and transformation (2015-2017).
Candice's research with children and young people has included researching children’s concepts of punctuation, and also their understanding of climate change both in school and out of school. She is particularly interested in the use of innovative research methods for investigating people's perspectives.
Since being at UCLan, Candice has collaborated with colleagues in health and social work to investigate children's concepts of pain, and disadvantaged children sharing narratives about their lives.
