BU KTP Associate presenting a paper at the KTP Associates’ Conference in June

Are you interested in exploring the possibilities of KTPs? Then, the KTP Associates’ Conference will provide an excellent networking opportunity for current and former KTP Associates, their academic and industrial supervisors and all those involved with, or who would like to be involved with, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.  Also, we can proudly confirm that one of BU’s own KTP Associates will be presenting a paper at the conference in June…..

Celia Beckett, is a HSC – KTP Associate based in Five Rivers Child Care Ltd.  The subject of the paper is her pilot study that is identifying ways of improving the assessment of the psychological needs of children who are looked after in residential care. Working with other leading experts in this area, she is hoping that the scheme will result in improved interventions and outcomes for looked after children. If successful with future funding, Dr Beckett is hoping to roll this scheme out further for children in foster placements and to evaluate its effectiveness. This project is addressing the standards identified in the NICE guidelines for improving outcomes for this group of children, who are at very high risk of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

We wish Celia the best of luck with her presentation at the conference!

The conference will be held at the University of Brighton on Thursday 13th June – if you would like to attend, please book your place via the University of Brighton’s website.
