I have over 15 years of experience in teaching, managing and implementing higher education qualifications.
I have extensive experience of delivering high quality education within an international setting. For example, I have delivered highly contextualised sport and event related qualifications in both Hong Kong and Holland. I have also been involved within curriculum development and enhancement in Greece, Holland and South Africa.
I am currently the external examiner for several sports management qualifications based in the UK. I have also sat on numerous validation and revalidation boards as an external panel member.
