I am the Project Lead for the Devon Clinical Placement Expansion Programme (CPEP). My former role with Devon County Council enabled me to develop trusting professional relationships with Devon’s social care providers. This collaborative work resulted in Devon taking a lead in the employment of Nursing Associate Apprentices in social care.
My early career was in social care management, followed by a 15 year spell as a teacher/manager in higher education. I am committed to the principles of coproduction, believing that those who are close to practice, are well-placed to support its development!
