I have been a school governor for Langstone Junior School since September 2016. My current role is as chairman of the Finances and Resources Committee. My background includes experience from a range of different areas including pharmaceutical research, purchasing, project management as well as directly from education where I have worked in secondary maths and business studies. I also have some experience of post 16 provision. I currently work as a caseworker for a South coast MP where am able to use my life and work experience to assist constituents with their concerns. As a grandmother of a primary age student I have the opportunity to maintain my understanding of provision in this section of education and can relate to both the parental side as well as the challenges faced by staff and pupils from my academic experience.
