Tell us about yourself!
I returned to the Isle of Man in 2009 after working in Australia for 20 years in a range of personal and professional development organisations and initiatives, including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, adventure therapy, juvenile justice and CPD consultancy. As Higher Education Manager at University College Isle of Man, I have focused on expanding the Island’s undergraduate and postgraduate offer with my specific expertise being work-based learning.
Despite the obvious attractions of Australia, the Isle of Man is not only my original ‘home’ but it also offers a unique environment where your work is visible and connected, and I feel I can make a real difference here.
Even though we are a small country there are often opportunities and activities that remain hidden – graduate employment and continuing education need to be promoted and encouraged.
