Stewart is an experienced Senior Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton and currently co-ordinates the work of the Emergency Management & Resilience Centre base at its Telford Innovation Campus in the UK.
His experience in emergency planning and managerial roles stretches back to the late 1990s, mainly in local government, as well having a background in teaching and training, gained from his previous voluntary work with young people.
More recently Stewart has a demonstrated history of innovative working within higher educa-tion and a vision of advancing the emergency planning, incident management and wider resili-ence fields. He is constantly seeking opportunities to develop new ways of engaging in learning, especially for those already working in this varied area, as well as bringing practical experience, training, research and qualification together.
Stewart has been delivering the MSc Emergency Planning Resilience & Response course since 2012 and a specific iteration of the course for military personnel since 2015. He is currently working on bringing a number of new opportunities to make such qualifications more accessible for those in the field who are already undertaking specialist training.
In practical terms, Stewart also demonstrates his desire to advance the field through sharing knowledge, in his role of manager of the free and open access peer reviewed journal, ‘Emergency Management Review’.
As the founding member and co-ordinator of the Emergency Management & Resilience Centre, Stewart provides a wide range of services including events, training courses, and academic courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is always looking for new opportunities and ventures that support the emergency planning, resilience and response field and to bring new creativity and innovation into his work.
