Kate Nicolson

Graduate FE and skills education technologist


I work in the FE and skills team, researching, testing and experimenting with digital resources and tools.

This work is to investigate innovations and standards for educational material. With a keen interest in user experience, pedagogy and accessibility, I try to find best practice.


I have a computing degree from Manchester Metropolitan University; the final year project was an in-depth analysis of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and their design.

As a CDL systems analyst, key responsibilities were requirements and risk analysis, user interface design, documentation and squad support.
