Tracy is an experienced lecturer in Criminology and is the Programme Lead on the College's HND Public Services (Crime and Criminal Justice) course.
Tracy initially joined the College in 2001 as an IT Key Skills lecturer and Support Mentor. After a career break and spending 2 years training as a midwife, she returned to Wiltshire College & University Centre as an adult learner and enrolled on the newly created HND Crime and Criminal Justice course. Tracy continued her studies graduating in 2017 from Gloucester University with first class honours in Applied Social Sciences, and has since rejoined the College as Programme Lead for the same criminology course she studied formerly.
Before joining the College's Criminology and Law team, Tracy spent four years within the inclusion and support team at the Lackham campus, part of this time as interim team leader.
Tracy's particular interest is how early experiences can affect an individual’s predisposition to criminality and how psychological theories relate to serial killers. As part of her professional development, Tracy has attended post-mortems at Flax Bourton Forensic Mortuary and Coroners Court, attended trials at The Old Bailey and taken part in anti-social behaviour training with Wiltshire Police.
Tracy passionately believes that Wiltshire College & University Centre staff can facilitate achievement at HE, irrespective of age or additional learning needs.
