I have worked in Education for 22 years. The last 12 of those years I have been in strategic leadership roles. I specialise in collaborative leadership, leading, facilitating, and growing school system leadership models. My roles have included director of community arts college, strategic lead for 14-19 education and assistant director of education of local authorities. My role at the Archdiocese Of Liverpool Primary School Improvement Trust (ALPSIT) involves me leading in partnership with all 184 of our catholic primary schools to help them to learn, improve and grow together for the good of all our children. My go to place is positivity and optimism and I lead with enthusiasm and a smile. I think the headteachers value my creativity and out of the box thinking… or so they let me believe!
