We are delighted to announce the appointment of a new sparqs Development Consultant, Steph Kirkham, who joined the sparqs team on Monday 20th November 2017. Steph will be with us for the coming year, providing maternity cover while both Stef Black and Hannah Clarke are on maternity leave.
Huge congratulations go to Stef, who welcomed a baby boy in early October, and our very best wishes go to Hannah, whose new arrival is due in late December! An exciting year ahead for them both!
Steph joins us from The Higher Education Outreach Network at The University of Surrey, where she designed and managed delivery of the Network’s outreach programme. During her first week, she is attending the European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) conference in Latvia along with Eve, so an exciting start to say the least! One of Steph’s main responsibilities will include working to support student engagement with national sector agencies, and university and college quality arrangements.
We look forward to working with Steph over the coming year and know that sector colleagues will join us in extending a warm welcome to her.
As a result of the staff changes, some of the institutional contacts have therefore changed, so please see the updated list to see which sparqs staff member is your institutional contact.
