Carole’s guiding principles are generosity, fairness and respect.
She is particularly interested in the intrinsic value of education and developing thinking skills and resilience.
She has worked across the creative sectors and within education for many years and enjoys using the arts to explore social and environmental issues, inspire teaching and learning and explore individual creativity. She is fully signed up to teaching students how to lead and find solutions and is fully behind the pedagogy of ‘teaching people how to think not what to think’.
Carole has devised and delivered projects and programmes with a range of organisations. She has held senior leadership positions with organisations as diverse as Creative Partnerships, the Arts Council, Tate Britain, Kinetika and A New Direction. She has worked regionally, nationally and internationally – in schools, youth and community groups and service providers. Carole has an international perspective having worked and travelled extensively. She has worked at the Centro Cultural Sao Paulo, Brazil and the Imagining Futures Conferences organised by the Aga Khan University in Nairobi, Kenya.
At UAL, Carole works with the Outreach Team working with children, young people, families, schools and creative organisations.
Within this role she continues to use the arts and creativity to explore issues and ideas, to challenge thinking and inspire the new crop of students to choose Higher Education, invest in their future and compete effectively in the emerging global economy.
Carole is inspired by sharing economies, People United, Gil Scott Heron, Toni Morrison and fried plantains.
