Biography

Dr Judith McCullouch is Director of Postgraduate Research Degrees in the University's Research and Knowledge Exchange Centre.

Judith is also research lead for the SCiP Alliance, a UK-wide partnership of like-minded organisations and people sharing a set of aspirations for the children of military personnel. The Alliance's mission is 'to champion the progression of the children of military personnel, so that they can make informed and confident transitions through further and higher education into thriving adult lives and careers'. Our framework is built on the three headline outcomes: inform, influence and engage. Each is intended to ensure improvements in the scale and quality of practitioners’ and researchers’ activity, and translate shared knowledge and impact into a stronger voice for service children’s educational outcomes. We are in active collaboration with an MP, MoD, DfE, DoH, UCAS, OfS, the Home Nations devolved governments and several other interest groups and universities.

HEI experience

Formerly a member of the Faculty of Education, Health and Social Care, Judith has been a Programme Leader, Head of Department, and Chair of the Faculty Quality Committee, requiring engagement with PSRBs and government funding streams such as DfE and Ofsted.
