I have worked in a range of roles specialising in academic quality and governance, most recently at Bath Spa University, where I was responsible for the quality management framework, including academic governance arrangements. Additionally, I was Deputy Clerk to the Board of Governors which included a secretarial role for some of the Board's subcommittees. Projects included leading one strand of the review of corporate governance and the reform of the academic quality management framework and complementary academic governance structures. Prior to that, I worked at the University of Oxford as an Academic Registrar, having started my career in higher education at the (then) University College Falmouth (now Falmouth University).
Other sector-related work has included external roles with University of Wales Trinity St David, Liverpool John Moores University and Southampton Solent University. I have been a reviewer for the QAA and acted as an international expert for the SKVC in Lithuania.
Alongside my role at Exeter, I work for the QAA as a Lead Quality Manager within the Membership, Quality Enhancement & Standards division.
