I have worked in a school environment for 15 years. I started at Outwood Academy Valley in 2004 as the 6th Form Administrator. I transferred to Outwood Post 16 Centre when it opened in September 2007 as the Office Manager. My role has since expanded and I am now the Office / Data Manager. As part of my Data Manager role, I am responsible for the transition of students from Year 11 into Year 12 and monitoring their progress throughout their studies at the Post 16 Centre using Praising Stars© to help ensure our students achieve their potential. I am also responsible for timetabling, reporting progress/results both internally and to the Department of Education. I work with a team of people to ensure the smooth running of the Centre.
