Tim Woodward

Lecturer

I have been teaching in the Higher Education sector since 2012 and graduated from The University of Cumbria with a BSc (Hons) in Professional Policing. I completed my teaching qualifications in 2013 and continue to develop my teaching practice through conferences and professional development within the Criminal Justice arena.

I come to the University as a practitioner within policing having served as a Police Officer for 20 years, working in areas as diverse as Roads Policing, Officer Safety and Probationer training. During my time within Policing I worked successfully with Colleagues from Cheshire Constabulary and the National Police Improvement Agency to develop key strategies associated with Public Transport policing.

On leaving the Police Service I moved into education working to establish new qualifications in the area of Policing and Public Service, and I currently lead on higher level qualifications within Public Services, in addition to teaching on the BA (Hons) in Crime and Criminal Justice.

I am currently focusing on research around multi agency response and have conducted relevant research in the field of Moral Panic and Media Influence which is influencing my Masters qualification in Counter-Terrorism.

My particular passion lies within developing students to achieve vocationally and through my work with Greater Manchester Police Cadets am able to demonstrate a progression route into Policing for students from the age of 14 years and upwards.

My personal objectives are to continue to develop my work within Criminal Justice and to support students to achieve in a demanding, challenging and highly rewarding vocational area.
