I am the head of further education (FE) and skills for Jisc. The key function of my role is to ensure Jisc meets the needs of providers within the FE and skills sector.
I work closely with funders, sector agencies and providers to ensure Jisc constantly understands the latest sector priorities and challenges.
The intelligence I gather helps Jisc directorates plan and respond to the ever changing needs of our FE and skills customers.
Previously I managed Jisc's north west Regional Support Centre (RSC) for 11 months and before that I worked as the learning resources and ILT development manager at Bolton College for 14 years.
