Supporting our Widening Access Students
I have worked at the University since October 2008, having taken up posts in Strategy & Policy, the Office of the Chief Operating Officer, and presently in the Widening Access Team in Student Experience & Enhancement services. My current role involves supporting undergraduate students from widening access backgrounds, ensuring they make a smooth transition to university and are aware of all the support services available to them. I am involved in the delivery of our Massive Open Online Course events and Open Day sessions, and the University's approach to being Age-friendly.
I have worked in the education sector in both further and higher education, initially as a Student Adviser in the City of Glasgow College where I was responsible for the administration of some of the largest schools within the college. My duties included making course offers, providing advice and guidance to students and potential students regarding full time, part time and evening courses, completion of application forms, funding and careers advice. Before moving to Strathclyde, I then took up a role at Middlefield school, a residential school for children with Autism, where I managed all business matters within the school. I managed pupil records, liaised with all parties engaging with the pupil to compile reports, controlled stock levels, organised activities and events, staff training and budget management.
