Work history

About me

In terms of what I can offer, I can offer expertise in curriculum design and development, and can help shape and support the charity to address challenges in creating suitable, level appropriate and engaging learning experiences for learners. In my recent roles, I have been working as a consultant for educational technology startups, businesses and corporations including HSBC, as well as Universities
including the University of Cambridge. My work with the University of Cambridge enabled the Social Sciences Research faculty to respond to emergency online teaching during the Covid19 pandemic. Within one month, I had designed and delivered, through consultation with academic staff, five research modules that were to be delivered across all Post-Graduate programmes across the university. I also
designed and delivered a large online workshop with 50 senior lecturers and professors at Cambridge, on Learning Design, using a Learning Design Framework that I had developed. This session was really well received and was followed up by 20 one hour sessions where academics could follow up with their learning design questions and challenges. My current role as Director of Content Services and Solutions, is a strategic role, where I have taken on business development responsibilities alongside driving forward the learning products and services that the company offers to UK and EMEA universities.

What am I looking for

I am interested in a strategic role where I can help shape the offer, approach and tone of educational experiences to maximise the learner experience in a holistic way. In terms of sector, i'm flexible; my experience has predominantly been in the education context, but id be very happy to step outside of that. I am keen to take on a volunteering role that complements my skills and allows me to really put passion into what I do and see some real impact in its results. This, for me, is what I am struggling to find in other work, and i'm desperate to see that my skills are being used for good, rather than for profit.
