I am the Designated Safeguarding Officer and Compliance Manager for GSL Education, and also manage our Grow Virtual Ltd services.

Following a very successful, rewarding 20-year career in teaching, I had my own children (2 gorgeous boys) and my life took a new path.

My intention was to find a better 'work-life balance' and to help others to do the same.  
GSL Education opened the door to a wonderful new adventure and generously allowed me time to support an ex-student in successfully developing his own business, offering NVQs in Construction.

My teaching and management experience gives me a diverse skill set; ideal for working with the team at GSL Education, as Designated Safeguarding Officer, Compliance Manager and through 'Grow Virtual Ltd', to ensure that others can find the time and confidence to focus on what matters to them.

I am passionate about well-being in schools. I believe emphatically that this can only come about through efficient and creative organisation of administration.  Schools have to accept and embrace some elements of business management in order to find the freedom to deliver education in the way that children and teachers deserve.

The concept behind Grow Virtual is to support schools and businesses in streamlining and outsourcing their operational administration, to improve efficiency and communication; so that schools can spend their ever-tightening budgets on staff/resources for improving teaching and learning and staff/student welfare.  After all, we all work best when we work to our strengths.

I am also delighted to be associated with the ‘Every Teacher Matters’ project and look forward to a new, more positive outlook for schools, staff and families.
