    Head of service

    01623 627191 ext 8126

    As head of HE and international, I have a cross-college role which involves leading on the growth and improvement of both HE and also international provision, so I work closely with the heads of school and other support areas, as well as leading the HE team. I am hugely proud of the work we have done to improve the HE student experience at college. We look forward to enhancing our relationships with our educational partners to provide the right courses for our students, and we continue to focus on building a positive experience, based on student feedback.

    I am so fortunate that despite all the meetings, emails and reports, I still have daily contact with students who come in to the Vision University Centre, because it is our students who make this role so worthwhile.

    01623 627191 ext 8699

    I’m the HE and international co-ordinator. It’s my job to try to make sure our HE team activities run smoothly, so the job is very varied! Behind the scenes, I organise essential administration, support validations and approvals, and external quality audits, and collect, track and monitor the quality of information associated with our HE courses. I can help with your queries about applications, enrolment, assessment hand-in etc., but can also help signpost where you can go to get answers to other queries you may have. I am also responsible for the organisation and administration of the assessment boards where your grades will be formally ratified.

    I also administer the HE Discretionary Fund, so if you find yourself in financial difficulty during your studies, contact me straightaway. We might be able to help.

    I’m the curriculum and communications officer for Higher Education and international. In my curriculum role, I ensure that the HE programmes are ready for internal and external review, audit, inspection and approval.
