I have worked at the College for over 16 years and have recently been appointed as the staff governor. My professional area of specialism is within Early Years.  I began as a practitioner while undertaking my Foundation Degree, later becoming the Nursery Manager before starting in this role as Head of Services for Learners.

While in the college Nursery I continued to study, attaining my BA Honours in 2016 and we also successfully achieved two outstanding judgements in our OFSTED inspections

I continue to develop my knowledge around Safeguarding and supporting young people with additional needs and continually work towards a vison of everyone achieving the best they can.  

In addition, I deliver the mandatory safeguarding training to staff to ensure there is confidence in keeping our young people safe. I am passionate and strive to be as approachable as possible to help those involved in sometimes challenging situations.

I am looking forward to my time as a staff governor, and hope that I will be able to bring an increased understanding to the team from a staff viewpoint, which will be beneficial in developing and approving any new direction the College may embrace in the future.
