Jessica Langston is a Teaching Fellow on the Social Work programmes at the Centre for Lifelong Learning. Jess’ background as a social worker is in children and families teams however she has an interest in broader social work skills such as whole family approaches, relationship-based social work and in critical thinking; Jess is particularly passionate about encouraging students (and practitioners) to consider social work within the context of a wider structure.
Jess is currently working on her PhD, an Institutional Ethnography of Social Work with a particular focus on the time restrictions in care proceedings, due for completion in late 2018. She has previously worked on participatory research in an English prison, an international comparison of social work practice across 8 nations, and an evaluation of student’s involvement in the teaching partnership in social work education.
