I am delighted to be taking up this post with the Forth Valley and West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative (RIC). I’ve come from a secondary background, originally as a Modern Studies teacher in Kilmarnock and Glasgow before spending the last 15 years at Senior Management level in Alloa Academy. Although my experience has been largely based in the secondary sector I’ve always been a strong believer in the importance of lifelong learning and fully appreciate the great work that early years and primary practitioners do on a daily basis in developing our children.
I hope that working together we can continue to create a genuinely collaborative organisation that is able to meaningfully support educators at all levels across the RIC in our drive to raise attainment, create equity and provide the best possible opportunities for our children and young people.
