Profile

Claudia works part-time within the 11-16 team and co-ordinates the UP for It Club for pupils in years 7-11. She aims to inspire and inform Club members about university life, courses and graduate careers.  
 
Claudia organises free taster activities during the school holidays, which are open to all members, on subjects ranging from cheerleading to marine biology.  She also edits the twice yearly magazine which is posted home to every member and features articles, interviews and competitions. Claudia is responsible for communicating with members and Club administration.
 
Claudia was a pupil at Priory School in Portsmouth and Havant College before going on to study Peace Studies at the University of Bradford. She was a youth worker for many years and after a postgraduate journalism course at Highbury College went on to work for the BBC. 
 
Claudia loves her job because she gets to see young people try out new things; and she gets to use her imagination and creativity in coming up with ideas for events and articles.
