Dr Ewa Carlton


Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2015, and in the UK, I was working as a lecturer in an Autistic Unit, in Oxford, teaching a variety of subjects to students diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorders,) 16-21 years of age. After three years of teaching in Oxford, I had decided to teach closer to home, and hence teaching Psychology, Sociology and Health and Social Care – GCSE and A-level students in private and state schools. Due to the inclusive nature of education, I was able to utilise my knowledge and experience to help children with SEN (special educational needs). Prior to my teaching career, I was working as a qualified nurse in a psychiatric hospital in Poland.

Apart from the five-year Nursing College (Poland), my studies in the UK include BSc (Hon), first class, in Psychology, at Brunel University. My specialist area of interest is Clinical Psychology. This discipline is interesting to me because it is linked with my previous experiences of working with individuals experiencing mental health problems. I also studied for my PhD, at Brunel University, where I developed a particular interest in the missing consensus between the three separate cultures: science, policy and practice, in relation to SEN and, particularly, to ASD. Then, I completed the PGCE course at Buckinghamshire New University.

My specialist knowledge has led me to work not only with typically developed students but also those who experience cognitive, emotional and psychiatric disabilities.

My career highlight is my ongoing privilege to be involved in young people’s educational journeys, and hence doing my best to create a promising future for them.
