Joseph Kean

Joseph KeanContemporary Issues in Drug Use, MSc

Joseph was a drug advice worker, who had experience of a number of different statutory and voluntary social service sector jobs, but little focus and specialism. Studying an MSc part time at Teesside University allowed him to address this, and since graduating he has gained promotion.

I feel that the combination of my qualifications and experience have prepared me to undertake more senior roles.
