Jessica is the Project Officer within the CPD Unit. To date, Jessica has worked on two major international projects. The Cardiff University China Scholarship Council University Management and Innovation Programme is a three month residential academic programme attended by mid to senior level managers from Chinese universities and will run for its third year in Cardiff during the summer of 2018. Jessica has also worked on a leadership development programme attended by delegates from Kuwait University.
I joined the CPD unit having spent five years working for various education/training focused charitable organisations. At Into Film, I worked to coordinate the delivery of face to face CPD to approximately 14,000 teachers and youth workers a year. I played a supporting role in the development of two successful MOOCs focused on raising literacy attainment through film and filmmaking and animation in the classroom. Prior to that, at Show Racism the Red Card Wales, I assisted in the development of the organisation’s first corporate Equality and Diversity training workshops, which were subsequently delivered to a number of public sector organisations.
