The new geospatial data service for higher and further education offers top quality, current mapping (with unlimited download capacity) and spatial data at highly cost effective prices. It is my job to help shape the new service to meet both sectors' needs.
The service will continue to develop and evolve over time, based on the requirements and feedback from the higher and further education sectors. I will assist members using the service and gather feedback via a user community, user helpdesk, webinars, online tutorials and member visits.
I've spent the majority of my career in education. This includes three years teaching maths in schools and 17 years working in further education at Stockton Riverside College in a variety of teaching and management roles.
I have worked for Jisc since 2001 as an e-learning adviser, manager of Jisc RSC Northern, and an account manager before becoming the geospatial data service development manager in October 2018.
