Tell us a bit about your career to date
For most of my career I’ve worked in a Further Education College as a Quality Enhancement Officer. In this role I was involved in a range of activities which included developing and maintaining the quality systems within the college. A key role was supporting staff by providing information, training, advice and guidance on these various quality systems as well as all the qualifications from the various awarding bodies we worked with. Working closely with both internal and external teams gave me the opportunity to be involved in a range of projects within the College sector.
What is your role within SCQFP
I support the SCQF Partnership in a range of activities relating to the quality and capacity building function. I will be working with Credit Rating Bodies and organisations who are interested in becoming Credit Rating bodies, delivering training and providing support to them. I will also be involved in capacity building in the College and University sectors, reviewing and developing guidance material and have responsibility for maintaining the SCQF database and supporting the work of the Partnerships’ Quality Committee.
Tell us something interesting about yourself
Many years ago I worked in Toronto for a summer and then did some travelling around the East coast of the USA. It was a fantastic experience!
