Selvie Hayward

Junior Research Executive

Selvie works in a lead project assistant capacity on a range of projects using qualitative and quantitative methods. She is currently involved in data processing, coding, interviewing and survey creating, delivering updates for clients and supporting on report writing. She has worked with clients such as the Science Council, Institute of Physics and UK Green Building Council. Selvie also works as our volunteering ambassador, finding opportunities for us to give back to the community, and promote positive wellbeing within the team.

Previously, Selvie completed a master’s degree in Disability Studies at the University of Bristol. Her master’s research project, exploring how teacher expectations affect the aspirations of disabled students, involved primary qualitative research methods and analysis.

Before this, Selvie graduated from Bath Spa University with an undergraduate degree in Education with Sociology, where she undertook a systematic literature review to explore the relationship between teacher attitudes towards SEN practice and effective inclusion. Selvie’s interest in education with a disability focus developed from her work within the widening participation department at university, as well as volunteering with MENCAP and Girl Guiding.
