Prof Jane Perryman profile picture
  • Professor of Sociology of Education
  • IOE - Curriculum, Pedagogy & Assessment
  • UCL Institute of Education

  • I was a social science teacher and head of department for 10 years before moving into Higher Education to become a course leader for the PGCE in Social Science, first at Goldsmiths College and then at UCL Institute of Education.  I then led the MPhil/PhD Research Training Programme. I have recently completed a five year term as Academic Head of Research for the Department of Curriculum Pedagogy and Assessment. I am currently Faculty Graduate Tutor, responsible for doctoral supervision across the IOE.

Research Summary
I am primarily interested in how policy effects the professional lives of teachers. I research issues around accountability, performativity and inspection, policy enactment more generally, and have recently completed a project on teacher retention. I use Foucault to help make sense of neo-liberal education systems. I work with qualitative methodologies, particularly interviewing and using case-studies.
