Derek Bland has been a secondary school teacher but has spent the majority of his education career developing and implementing programs related to socio-economic disadvantage. After a number of years as a regional coordinator of the Disadvantaged Schools Program in Victoria, Derek took up the challenge of establishing a university access and support program at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. Derek led this highly successful program for ten years before deciding to take up full-time studies. He is now approaching the third year of his PhD project which is focused on "at-risk" high school students in a "students-as-researchers" program.
