I joined the College because I believe the Further Education experience is a vital part of the local community, offering a unique and valuable service to learners, industry and the local economy.  My 30 years experience in educational publishing have given me some useful skills and knowledge which I would like to use to give back something to the College which nurtured both me and my daughter at critical times in our educational journeys.

Formerly served on Board at Age UK Gloucestershire, University of Gloucestershire Students Union and Healthwatch Gloucestershire Currently Steering Group Member, Healthwatch, Gloucestershire

I have always been interested in education, as a student, teacher, trainer and mentor. Since retirement I have updated my knowledge of post 16 education as a University SU Trustee and through casual work as an exams invigilator in a comprehensive school. I wish to use my knowledge and experience for the benefit of Gloucestershire College.

Why did you join the Gloucestershire Board?
Having worked in vocational education for most of my career, mainly with awarding organisations, I aspire to bring a focus on accredited learning to the Curriculum and Quality Committee. I feel passionately about the transformative ability of further education and broadening the student experience to provide a curriculum that delivers on “whole education”.
I want to lead by example and support women to take on Board positions.

I’m a firm believer that Education is powerful and has the capacity to change someone’s life for the better. My career in higher education has given me skills and knowledge that I’d like to put to good use by volunteering with the College and making a contribute to my local community.
