Bram Roosens

In 2009 Bram Roosens obtained his Master’s degree in social work and social policy at the Catholic University of Louvain. After his studies he worked as a researcher for the Centre of Sociological Research (CeSO-KULeuven) and the Research Institute for Work and Society (HIVA-KULeuven), where he carried out policy-oriented research on quality of labour and labour market policies. Bram Roosens is currently working as a researcher at University College Leuven-Limburg. As a team member of the Centre for Social and Co-operative Entrepreneurship (CESOC) he’s involved in different projects concerning active labour market policies and work integration social enterprises (WISEs). He teaches social services and legal aid at the department of social work, where he draws on his experience as a social worker in different social economy projects. As a tutor he provides support for social work students during their internships. Together with his colleague Lies Wijnants, Bram Roosens is involved in a transnational project on work based learning. In partnership with the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, the aim is to develop a masterclass in work based learning. This project proposes developing and delivering a work based learning practitioner programme that describes best practice in relation to the development and delivery of work based learning programmes. The programme will be aimed at both academic and industry representatives and will address the key challenges in work based learning.
