He was employed at a senior level in the WEA, further education, and Local Authority adult education. He served as Visiting Professor at Paris Nanterre, Milano Bicocca and Michigan State and jointly coordinated the ESREA Life History and Biography and Transforming Perspectives Networks over many years. He is an honorary life member of SCUTREA.
