Personal profile

I have had a varied and interesting career which has involved working in both private and public sector organisations. My initial career was with the American Embassy in London which involved working with both US and UK Government officials dealing with high level visits pertaining to policy related meetings involving a number of agencies. I was also part of a task force which dealt with any national emergencies, including Lockerbie.

In 2001 I came into Higher Education and supported a newly created Centre of Quality Excellence at the University of Leicester involved in Distance Learning MSc courses. In managing this Department it piqued my interest in teaching. This developed into my new career path in teaching, which included teaching adult courses, and since 2012 at Leicester College as Programme Lead - teaching HE courses for those completing the Higher National Diploma in Business in partnership with DMU; adults completing Level 5 in Institute of Leadership and Management. During my career at college, I have also been a Lead Internal Verifier cross college for all Functional Skills English provision as well as Internal Quality Assurer for Teacher Education courses. I have also been a mentor supporting colleagues through their teaching qualifications providing strategies for teaching pedagogy and methodology in assessment practice. 

Having established a long standing relationship with De Montfort University through the partnership provision and as a Part Time Tutor for undergraduate courses, I want to develop my skills now and specialise within the Apprenticeship provision.
