About Me

I am currently not working as a freelance consultant as I am now the Course Leader for Apprenticeships in the Creative and Cultural sectors at Westminster Adult Education Service.

I am:

  • A specialist in Cultural Heritage learning.
  • A skilled Public Programmer.
  • An expert in helping museums and heritage sites create successful learning and engagement programmes for families, adult learners and communities.
  • A qualified work-based learning assessor for Diploma and Apprenticeship programmes in museums, galleries, libraries and archives.
  • A Visiting Lecturer, teaching and tutoring students in museum studies at postgraduate level.
  • Knowledgeable and well connected in the sector through my roles in the Group for Education in Museums (GEM) and the International Council of Museums (ICOM) Committee for Education and Cultural Action (CECA).

I am a passionate and committed cultural heritage learning professional. I have over 15 years experience of creating and managing projects in different museums, cultural organisations and heritage sites such as Open House London, Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), UCL Museums and Culture&.

I combine this practical experience with an academic grounding in theory, through my role as a Visiting Lecturer on various BA and MA Museum Studies courses and as a PhD researcher. I also have an in-depth understanding of cultural policy, strategy and best practice through my roles in sector support organisations such as GEM and ICOM.
