Professional biography

Hi,

I have been working as a co-ordinator for the Health and Social Care Faculty in the Yorkshire Region since 2010. Working across the board with Nursing, Social Work, Youth Justice, Health and Social Care and the Postgraduate programme I get to see so much amazing work that is carried out in this faculty. I work with so many varieties of people including staff, students and employers and try my best to make sure everyone can study, teach, work and collaborate effectively with us in the Regional Centre in Leeds.

Since 2013 I have also been taking on the role of Data Interpreter for  the Health and Social Care Student Support Team. This involves working with data using the Student Support Tool. As well as manage the sending of interventions to students throughout their modules, I use the tool to identify set groups of students based on particular needs at the time. Examples include students on 120 credit points, non TMA submissions and progress through qualifications. Liaising with different parts of the University means that this data can be used to influence the communication we send to students to ensure it is useful, timely and hopefully appreciated!

I am always happy to take queries and even though I am still learning a lot and things in Higher Education are changing so much, I am always happy to try and find the answer!
