Mercia Learning Trust

Why do you value being a Chamber council member? 

I value the opportunity to engage with different members across a range of city-wide issues, and the chance to express the position of education into wider strategies.

What’s the most important thing you bring to the Council, to benefit Chamber members? 

Providing an insight from education, and Multi-Academy Trusts as medium sized charitable companies. Working to improve relationships with employers and the sector and improving engagement and the through flow of young talent into local opportunities for all.

Why is Sheffield the best UK city to live, work and play?

I fell in love with the city when I first came to study at university in 1984. I love the people, the sense of community, the football, and the proximity and access to the beautiful Peak District.
