I am the Senior Manager in IIB responsible for leading the strategy and development of a portfolio of new Degree Apprenticeship programmes across the university. I work with a team of colleagues in IIB to look at the market demand and viability of new higher and degree apprenticeships as they are developed  and approved by the Institute of Apprenticeships. This includes testing employer demand through to a business case to the relevant College Executive Group and eventual programme launch.


Between 1997-2000 I worked at the university as Continuing Education Manager supporting the development of new and flexible part-time educational programmes for business. Between 2000-2017 I worked in the FE sector as a Senior Manager, responsible for employer engagement, curriculum management, apprenticeship programmes and academic partnerships.
