Alison Gray Group Director Quality Assurance
I started teaching part-time evening classes whilst self-employed at the age of 21, this led onto a full-time teaching career whilst balancing family and work life in my late twenties. I have worked at Hull College as a lecturer and most recently at East Riding College as a Senior Manager. I have the experience of working in a merged college and look forward to moving this agenda on in my new group role.
As part of my CPD, I qualified as an Ofsted Inspector and now inspect as a part-time serving practitioner, this brings useful and current practice back to the day job. I have never felt so welcome in an institution and the reception I have had from both sites has been exceptional and thank you to those whom I have met already. In term of inspiration, I never under estimate the power and stimulus of student voice and I am always interested to hear their views, this is one of the fascinating aspects of the job as positive changes can be made as a result of collecting these messages.
My mantra in a quality role is simply “say what you see” although I resonate with this African proverb “if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” I look forward to working with you all. Quality Improvement
