MITA Project Manager, UCL Institute of Education
I am the Project Manager for both the EEF-funded Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants (MITA) project and the MITA school improvement course for school leaders. I play a key role in the organisation and delivery of this high-profile project, coordinating the day-to-day delivery of the MITA project work plan, activities, events and deliverables, and monitoring progress.
I have two years’ experience managing research projects based in educational settings, ranging from universities to nurseries and everything in-between. I have an MSc in Developmental Psychology and a BSc in Psychology, Counselling and Therapies.
