"I have wide experience of the changes to music in HE. I have worked as an hourly paid lecturer; as a full time lecturer on a temporary contract; gone through redundancy; and now act as head of department. I focus on the protection of music in the current fiscal environment, debating music's benefit to institutional diversity and finding ways to maximise quality with reduced resources. I have represented NAMHE at national conferences, at AHRC launches, within the GCSE and A Level reform consultation, and as part of HEA projects since 2011. I co-organised the annual conference 2014 and worked in shortlisting/appointing a researcher to the GEM Project (Gender Equality Mark)."
