I have been Principal at the college for the last 5 years. I started my career as a Sport Lecturer at Knowsley Community College, before moving to management at Runshaw College. I was responsible for Sport, Public Services and Enrichment at Runshaw College and this is where I developed a keen interest and understanding of key quality procedures. Five years later I became a senior manager responsible for 6th Form, Construction, Catering, Sport, Travel & Tourism, Hair & Beauty, Business and elements of Quality and Marketing at Deeside College. I then moved to Vice Principal at Blackburn College for 3 years with responsibility for Higher Education (3,000+ students), 6th Form, Marketing, Human Resources, Teaching & Learning and Quality.

I am currently the Chair of the AOC Regional Committee, a member of the AOC Sports Principals’ Group and AOC Sub Regional Reps Group. I am a member of a number of additional groups at national, regional and local level representing the college and the sector.
