I Joined the University of Portsmouth in early 2017 and I am one of two student Engagement Officers, working in the Portsmouth Business School. I provide support to students on a number of different engagement issues. I also work on designing projects and interventions, which support the engagement, success and retention of PBS students. I have had over 10 years of experience working with students in various different roles within education. I have worked as an EFL and English Lecturer in FE colleges, and I have managed, and set up academic skills departments in different establishments. In my most recent role, prior to working at the University, I was a Foundation Learning Lecturer, and specialised in working with students with autism and social and emotional needs; an area in which I have a particular interest.
