Director of further education and skills

My blog posts


I am director 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 members.


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.
