I believe as an employee of Gower College I have proven myself to be:
Upon joining Gower College, my first role was to deliver Functional Skills as part of the English contract. This allowed me to work very closely with the Essential Skills team. I have maintained excellent ties with them, and we have since collaborated on the move to Teams, the rollout of Digital Skills and ALN support programmes.
As a digital mentor, I was able to support staff across the college in departments other than my own. This was a fantastic opportunity to meet the wider team. I have supported the Business Admin team with resources and their use of technology, I regular assist with Smart Assessor, work closely with the digital and quality teams, and I have an excellent working relationship with staff across the campuses.
I have initiated Computing, IT and Functional Skills courses which are now in full-time delivery and, as such, I have made excellent contacts in the Health Board, Powys Council and the DVLA – I am frequently called upon to deliver presentations employers, answer queries about eligibility, and discuss our courses.
While I have had few leadership and support roles to date, I am keen to develop in this field. I have demonstrated that I can work to deadlines, am target driven, and can plan to meet the needs of both GCS and our commercial partners.
I have recently completed my level 4 Award in ILM Leadership and management and I am currently undertaking the level 5 apprenticeship. To develop my skills further, my line manager asked me to take responsibility for the rollout the new Digital Skills for Business qualification. We are now delivering it our fourth cohort and I believe it will be a successful programme for the college going forward. I pride myself in my ability to handle the demands of a full caseload, alongside the other activities I undertake within the college.
I am a qualified Assessor and Internal Quality Assurer, I understand the need for compliance across our delivery platforms, and I lead regular standardisation meetings for the digital team. I hold a full PGCE with Qualified Teacher status. I am committed to promoting a safe environment for staff and students, have enhanced DBS and registration with the EWC.
