Subject specialist (accessibility and inclusion) Scotland

My blog posts



Role

I am one of four subject specialists within the Jisc customer services team who will provide support in embedding access and inclusion into strategic and operational practice.

As well as working with staff in FE and HE who have direct responsibility for equalities and inclusion, I aim to work with a wide range of disciplines offering guidance in how people can embed inclusivity into everyday practice.

Background

I started my professional life as an occupational therapist working primarily as a vocational rehabilitation manager supporting people with disabilities who were preparing to return to education, training or employment.

I then became extended learning support coordinator at Glasgow College of Building and Printing where I established a large and dynamic cross college inclusion service. In 2005 I joined Jisc RSC Scotland as inclusion advisor.
