Staff Profile: Richard Dobbs
Social Work and Social Care
Richard is one of the lecturers on the Youth Work courses and contributes to the range of Health and Social Care modules
Richard has worked with young people in a variety of settings (including youth centres and support projects) since graduating and continues to work with young people leaving local authority care. Seeing young people grow and progress has been very rewarding. The focus of his Master's research was young people, sociolinguistics and sarcasm, which was the source of much rich material.
The subjects taught include working with children, young people and youth subcultures and involve a combination of lectures with small group work.
