In my four years at SCCD I’ve covered a number of roles including Receptionist, Placement Officer and Student Support. I’m now helping people to advance their career prospects, placing able candidates in our brand new Heath and Social Care course.
It’s a pleasure being part of a growing company with positive future prospects, but what I enjoy most about working with SCCD is the people. We have a real bond here – everyone looks out for each other and that’s why so many of us have been here for so long.
I am passionate about Audit, Performance and Quality Management, I have experience of assessment of Post 16 Learning, Contract Compliance, Self-Assessment, Evidence Reviews, and Adult Learning, Audit & Inspection, managing large public funded contracts.
With 15 years of project management experience under my belt, my strengths lie in my ability to influence people, create and implement policy. I am an open-minded and conscientious person that believes in giving back to society through education and learning – to make a difference and prepare communities for a better tomorrow.
Since graduating from university I’ve had a diverse set of experiences – travelling, skiing, teaching abroad, and now I’m delighted to head up marketing efforts at SCCD. My creative instincts, analytical abilities and friendly nature mean I fit well in a communications role, and I’m looking forward to help get our message across to all kinds of audiences.
I’m particularly keen to improve the company’s digital presence – so am hard at work on our site and social media profiles – keeping students, past and current, updated with all the latest news and events.
