Dr Darren Moore


Darren Moore is a lecturer working in the Graduate School of Education. He previously worked as a Research Fellow on an NIHR HTA funded systematic review of mental health interventions for children and young people with long term conditions.

He has conducted systematic reviews on ADHD interventions in school settings, mindfulness based interventions for school teachers, daily report cards for children with ADHD and community pharmacist home visits. Recent qualitative research has explored the experiences of educators working with children with ADHD and the experience of graduate teaching assistants.

Darren's ESRC funded PhD investigated the experiences and decisions of hard to reach learners across the post-16 transition. Using Grounded Theory methodology he captured the attitudes, experiences and decisions of young people identified by their schools as hard to reach learners while in Year 10 and Year 11.

Darren has taught on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes since 2008, currently he is the course lead for the Secondary PGCE in Secondary Science and teaches on the MA Education SEN pathway.
