Kevin is course leader for the BA Hons Sport Coaching and Development degree and teaches across a wide range of subject areas including sport development, public health, monitoring and evaluation and sustainability. He was recently successful in gaining professional accreditation for the course through CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for Management Sport and Physical Activity) which recognises the employability focus of the course in line with national occupational standards.

Within his areas of teaching Kevin has developed the curriculum around experiential and employability fields and has pioneered Solent's Coaching Innovation Programme (CIP) which mobilises student-led coaching for social change projects. These are supported by a strong steering group of sport development and public health practitioners and now constitute a significant volume of the sport development provision that takes place in Southampton. Kevin was awarded the Solent University 2016 Staff Award for Innovation and Creativity regarding his work in the CIP.

Kevin holds a PhD in the area of collaborative approaches to evaluation with practitioners working within Sport for Social Change environments. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
