Tell us something about you that we don't need to know, but helps us get to know you

I love learning new physical skills and have dabbled with scuba-diving, indoor rock-climbing, horse-riding and triathlons, plus the less adventurous creative arts of needlework, drawing, colouring and painting and crochet so far!

What is the most exciting thing in the future of assessment?

Using technology to bring assessment forward to meet the current and future needs of students, teachers, education establishments, industry, and a sustainable environment.

What most annoys you about the assessment industry?

The persistent fear of change and fear of failure that holds it back.

What are your interests?

I'm currently addicted to crochet (especially amigurumi) and I'm relearning to play the piano after a 35 year break.
