Before starting PRECEPTS I was Principal Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University Cambridge, UK. There I developed major national projects of training and qualification for inspection staff in health and social care regulation agencies (See Our Experience Pages). I developed an international MSc in Regulation, Inspection and Improvement.
My interest in regulation is:
- Encouraging a pracademic knowledge base for regulation and scrutiny
- Clarifying regulatory tools and strategies and their relationship to outcomes for end users, and
- Supporting the citizen to gain more control in regulatory processes.
PRECEPTS develops these interests. It is a social enterprise with social aims supported by trade, research and consultancy. It seeks partnerships and affiliations to improve the practice of regulation.
In 2014 John gained a merit in a management of charities and social enterprise qualification.
