I am currently a Senior Lecturer and Course Director for the MSc in Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology at Keele University where I am a researcher working with industry and public sector to find solutions to climate change nationally and internationally. I have been a member of the MAT since 2016
I have a passion for ensuring that through education everyone can have access to equality of opportunity. Since 2015 I have also been a Pupil Premium Champion qualified in undertaking Ofsted directed Pupil Premium reviews. I have also chaired a number of Education-Business partnership groups in past roles and think it is important for our academies to make solid links with non-education institutions – to this end we are growing our number of partners working as part of our Trust.
I am very proud to be Chief Executive Officer of United Endeavour Trust. We are proud of our achievements, of our staff and students and we are ambitious for continual improvement which progresses us towards achieving high academic and pastoral standards. We have a strong commitment to developing the whole child and to working in wider partnerships to allow our students to experience active citizenship and a good preparation for employability and a life based on developing well-being. We have only been a Multi-Academy Trust since October 2015 but we have developed clear structures for the successful governance and management of the MAT which are being used as good practice examples with a number of developing MATs.”
In 2007 I led the setting up of an internal apprentice training facility which is EAL accredited, in which we have trained over 80 apprentices over the last 10 years. I am PGCE qualified and the West Midlands Apprentice Ambassador for the ESFA. I am proud to say that KMF have won awards for apprenticeship delivery and are one of the top 100 apprentice employers.
I am delighted to be a part of the United Endeavour Trust Board, as I work very hard to engage with schools and young people in Stoke on Trent to raise aspirations in STEM related subjects.”
After working in digital marketing and education for over 20 years I set my business up, to answer one simple question – how can UK businesses harness digital talent to improve. It’s a simple concept that takes the very best digital marketing training & harnesses them with innovative training techniques & technologies to meet business growth needs. It’s not just about knowledge transfer it is about the application & impact on a business and a person’s future career.

I started teaching in 2003, originally a Drama teacher I have worked in schools across the midlands and I have 12 years’ experience of leadership at a senior level. I have been fortunate enough to hold positions in leadership of curriculum areas, post 16, pastoral and teaching and learning. I have worked in a variety of schools that have all had their own challenges and enjoy the opportunity to be part of team working to bring about school improvement to provide the best for the young people that attend the provision.
I have a strong passion for school improvement and believe that no one should be left behind or not be given access to opportunities to further develop. In all my roles from an NQT to Principal I have always taken the same view that any decision made should always have the student at the centre and I am proud to be able to represent United Endeavour Trust as a Director.
