Day to day I work with schools across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Swindon to support them to access existing H.E. Outreach and identify gaps in provision.
More about me:
During my previous role at Larkmead Secondary School I was able to observe first-hand the daily challenges students face on their journey through education to employment. The collaborative approach is one I feel very motivated by, feeling it places Advisors in the best position to offer the best option.
Working with Study Higher is a natural progression of my career to date: I am able to signpost the schools I now work with, including Larkmead, towards activities and engagement programmes which will support the students through Higher Education to Careers.
My own journey has always involved working with young people: I ran a child-minding company for 9 years before entering the education sector, initially in a primary school before joining Larkmead for 12 years. It was during my last role that I decided to study with The Open University & completed my Open Degree while working full time. This has given me the advantage of seeing education via a slightly different pathway, one which I enthusiastically share with those who will listen.
