Current Responsibilities

My current responsibilities include leading Troops to Teachers, an innovative national programme that is targeted at ex-service personnel.

During its early stages, I was responsible for designing the technology architecture that would enable us to deliver an undergraduate programme on a national scale. With a small team, I lead a programme that is focussed on promoting outstanding student experience that offers a range of strategies to support the unique needs of career changers and service leavers. I am also responsible for all University of Brighton employment based ITE routes including; School Direct Salaried, School Direct Tuition and the Postgraduate Apprenticeship (Early Years, Primary and Secondary). My role includes overseeing recruitment, student welfare and academic standards for all employment-based students.
