I am the SEND Hub Business Manager. I joined Fusion from its inception in September 2014, having previously worked for the Learning Support Service in Sheffield City Council since 2003 and have been an integral part of our Teaching Schools expansion during this time. My role has developed with the growth and development from a teaching school to a SEND Hub, and the many services we offer to schools and professionals in the area of SEND. I provide organisational support to Cheryl, Director of the SEND Hub and provide a central point of contact between the Hub and partnership schools, the Local Authority, parents and carers and participants on the many various CPD events and accredited training programmes we run.
I have been the co-ordinator for the National Professional Qualification (NPQ) programme; a joint collaboration between the Sheffield City Region’s TSA’s and Leeds Beckett University. This successful programme involved over 170 school colleagues, facilitators and guest speakers across our region since it began in 2018. I co-ordinate and manage the annual subscription sign-up of Sheffield schools to the Fusion S2S Service, working closely with the LA and our schools to ensure they get the best fit from our Service.
I organise the many professional learning events we offer and can support schools on developing their staff’s CPD needs in all areas of SEND. If you would like to know more about how Fusion SEND Hub can help you, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
