National Project Coordinator
As the School of Welsh’s Student Support Officer, I work closely with the Staff and Student Support Manager to ensure that our students are supported during their studies. The Student Support Team supports a variety of activities including recruitment and admissions, enrolment, teaching support, student records, student cases, student voice and assessment and feedback issues.
I work closely with the School’s Director of Teaching and Learning and Assessment and Feedback Lead to support learning and assessment. I have recently led on adapting the School's assessment manuals and have worked with academic staff to develop how our students engage with different types of feedback.
Between November 2019 and April 2020, I was seconded to the role of National Project Coordinator for the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol funded Welsh Student Mentoring Scheme. As part of this role, I led the recruitment and training of undergraduate students to act as mentors for secondary school pupils in schools across Wales.
Originally from Anglesey, I joined Cardiff University in 2009 as an undergraduate student. I graduated in Welsh and History in 2012 before completing a MA in Welsh and Celtic Studies here in the School. I worked at the University's Student Recruitment Office before joining the School of Welsh as the Student Support Officer in March 2015. Between November 2019 and April 2020, I was seconded to the role of National Project Coordinator for the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol funded Welsh Student Mentoring Scheme.
I recently completed the AUA Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership.
