Head of Administration (Teaching and Learning)
I am responsible for managing the comprehensive range of teaching and learning services in support of the Department's strategic objectives to provide an outstanding teaching, learning and student experience throughout the student lifecycle. I provide leadership of the professional services staff involved in teaching and learning.
I work with the Director of Studies to take a lead role in the development and delivery of the Department's teaching and learning strategy, including preparations for the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the Institutional Teaching and Learning Review (ITLR). With the Director of Studies, I lead on the planning and delivery of student survey campaigns (such as the National Student Survey (NSS), Postgraduate Taught Student Experience Survey (PTES) and the Postgraduate Research Student Experience Survey (PRES)), and formulate, manage and liaise on action plans arising from the surveys.
I lead and manage the delivery of high quality teaching and learning support services across all stages of the student lifecycle. I am a member of and secretary to the Department's Teaching and Learning Committee, and develop, manage embed policies, procedures and processes initiated by the Committee.
Before my career at Warwick, I worked at Cardiff University, having been appointed to their graduate management training programme, from there becoming Departmental Administrator in the School of Optometry. I have a BA and MA in English Literature from the University of Wales, Cardiff.
I joined Warwick in 2004, and worked in roles within the Graduate School, Faculty Secretariat and Teaching Quality, which included being part in the QAA Institutional Audit 2004 team. I moved to Economics as Teaching Programmes Manager in early 2005, with administrative responsibility for the operation of the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes, and after a departmental restructure was appointed as Quality Assurance Manager in Economics in 2012. After a further restructure and the creation of a new role of Head of Administration (Teaching and Learning) in 2018, I was appointed into my current post.
