About me

I work as the Evaluation and Data Officer within the Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) team, based at our Frenchay campus.

As part of my role, I have designed a measure of learning gain named the 'Academic Progress Model' (APM) of Learning Gain. In 2019/20 I will be trialing the measure with programmes from each faculty to see whether the method is useful and impactful for them. The focus of this pilot will be on academic progress and improving attainment of different demographic groups. A report of the findings will be published in Summer 2020. I also assist the EDI team with data handling and analysis, which has included assisting in the creation of the Student Compendium for 2017/18.

I am a member of the Learning Gain Task and Finish Group, which is made up of representatives from teams whose projects link to learning gain, or teams who are supporting the learning gain projects. This includes representatives from Learning 2020, Student Inclusivity, Learner Analytics, Employability and Enterprise and the Students Union.

My journey with UWE Bristol started in 2012 as a student studying BSc (Hons) Forensic Science. 

After graduating, I worked for six months as an Associate Recruitment Consultant for Hays in their Education team, managing groups of candidates and clients.

After developing my professional and administrative skills at Hays, I joined UWE Bristol as Placement Coordinator within the Professional Practice Office in 2016, working with the Primary Education team based on Frenchay campus. I took responsibility for the management of all undergraduate and postgraduate primary education placements, working with schools across five counties. I led the planning and implementation of the Ofsted data suite and was responsible for maintaining the data. I also held a key role in the development of a new placement portal for schools to use.

I am the coordinator of the Staff Craft Club and a member of the UWE Bristol Women's Forum.

I am the Women's Officer for the UWE Bristol branch of Unsion. I am also the Chair of the South West Young Members Forum for Unison.
