Lyndsey Kramer



My BSc honours degree was in Social Policy at The University of Plymouth and included a focus on the application of sociological theory to social policy and citizenship. Whilst studying at Plymouth I work as a survey interviewer in the Department of Sociology and as a research assistant in the Department of Social Policy. My BSc honours earned an ESRC award to study for a master’s degree in public administration at Exeter University. Further experience has been gained by working as a college lecturer for which I earned a PGCE in post compulsory education and training and as a qualified schoolteacher. I am currently working as a GTA at the University of York.
