From student to lecturer – it’s good to talk
By Sarah Wood
A former University of Gloucestershire student turned lecturer will be sharing his story live online next week.
Jack James joined the University of Gloucestershire in 2013, studying criminology. Now as a university lecturer, he is inspiring a new generation of students.
Jack also has a background in response and community policing, having previously worked full-time as coordinator for a Gloucestershire Constabulary and Tewkesbury Borough Council joint initiative to divert young people away from the criminal justice system.
As part of the university's Living Room Lecture series, Jack he will talk through his journey from student to lecturer, and inspire others to make the most of their own university experiences.
Join the University of Gloucestershire on Facebook at 1pm on Wednesday 3 March for Jack's online presentation, followed by a live Q&A. No booking or ticket is required.
Jack James, lecturer in professional policing, said: "I studied BSc Criminology at the University of Gloucestershire before completing my Masters degree in International Security at the University of Bath.
"Now, I'm a University of Gloucestershire Lecturer, teaching across the professional policing course, particularly during practical sessions such as 'stop and search', premise searches and crime scene investigation. I'm also a serving Inspector with the British Transport Police Special Constabulary.
"My research interests include the police use of tasers, armed policing in the UK, and counter terrorism. My career so far has been quite a journey."
The Living Room Lectures are streamed live on the University's Facebook page. Jack will take questions from the audience - just submit them during the lecture.
