Fred Inglis is a PhD Researcher in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning, funded by the SeNSS/ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership. He is supervised by Dr Simon Hammond and Dr Karen Bunning.
Fred also works as an Associate Tutor in the School of Psychology, coordinating and teaching on the ‘Further Qualitative Research’ module for the Social Science Research Methods MRes programme.
Fred’s research explores the education to work transitions of young adults with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). Combining common and innovative qualitative data collection methods, his work aims to generate rich and meaningful insight into the lived experiences of a group historically marginalised from the mainstream UK workforce.
Fred advocates for the effective, appropriate, and sensitive implementation of adjustments which improve the accessibility of qualitative research participation for individuals with diverse learning, communication or additional support needs.
