Profile: As the Primary Outreach Coordinator at Bournemouth University I have a strong commitment to raising and supporting the aspirations of young people. I believe the earlier young people can start to think and plan for their future the more likelihood they have of reaching their goals. I have worked in Outreach at the University for the past 12 years working with both Primary and Secondary Schools across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset. Prior to this I lived in London and as a music graduate I taught Classical Piano to all ages including adults and children with SEN. I still play the piano and now enjoy teaching my son. I am dedicated to supporting students particularly those students who face the biggest challenges to ensure they achieve the very highest standards.
