About Howard Stones

Howard Stones taught secondary school physics, general science and mathematics for ten years. During this time, he also worked with children and young people in outdoor activities, such as Duke of Edinburgh expedition training and Yorkshire Schools Exploring Society expedition to Peru. Subsequently, as a youth and community worker, he worked on various photographic, drama and other projects with young people in deprived areas of the city. 
Since moving into higher education, Howard taught sociology and social policy on the Community and Youth work degrees at Ilkley and Bradford College. He then taught sociology, social policy, philosophy and criminology at the University of Bradford.

While at Bradford and Ilkley Community College, he coordinated a successful bid for funding as part of a prestigious national programme, The Fund for The Development of Teaching and Learning (FDTL) and became the Project Manager for the ensuing project, ‘Action Learning for Personal and Professional Development’ in Applied Social Work.

Later, he was centrally involved in international projects to develop Masters programmes in Social Management in Eastern Europe. In this work, he taught at the universities of Minsk and Donetsk, visited several community and children’s projects and presented papers to international conferences. More recently, he has taught guest lectures in Finland.

Research Interests

Howard is currently undertaking professional doctoral research into young people who are active in politics and their relationships with educational professionals.  The research is to take a critical look at how schools manage contradictory representations  of children and young people as “active citizens”, on the one hand, but “incomplete” and “incompetent” political agents on the other.
