Head of Inclusion
DCG – Derby College Group
I have worked for over 20 years in the post 16 education sector, always feeling most comfortable working alongside students and teams who need something different to the regular!
I am a passionate “Inclusionist” and after making up the word in 2018 I am now determined to get it in a dictionary before I retire!
The things that motivate me in my professional world are:
- developing aggressive aspirations with teams and students to impact on lives and communities
- watching people grow and then instilling the confidence to push them further
- innovation never really settling for anything – Kaizan!
- challenging myself to change the language I use about inclusion to challenge established norms
In the real world my passions are:
being outside, family, white wine, dogs, laugher – usually all at the same time!
