Since the relaunch of the Hairdressing Training site last June, the running and development has now been handed over to the Further Education and Skills team.
The team is headed by Karla Youngs. Karla has nearly 20 years’ experience within the higher education sector in developing and delivering digital media related services and projects. She has led teams in developing applied research activities, information resources and training and consultancy to clients across FE and skills, HE and the cultural heritage sector.
Pete Collins has taken on the role of Further Education and Skills Services Manager. Pete manages the Hairdressing Training team as well as other service and project management functions within the FE & Skills area. Pete has been with Jisc for three years, previously supporting the Jorum Open Educational Resources repository before moving into his new role.
Paul Madley is now a permanent member of the Further Education and Skills team in the role of Technical Developer. Paul is our WordPress expert and played a major part in the development of the Hairdressing Training website. Going forward Paul will be supporting the technical aspects of the service as well as enhancing and improving it for all our members. Like Pete, Paul was also part of the Jorum team.
In December, Clare Liggins joined the team as Curriculum and Services Support Officer. Previously working in library services outside of Jisc, Clare will focus on the monthly newsletters as well as introducing quarterly user stories. She will be working to develop the social media presence of Hairdressing Training, taking over the current channels and expanding into further platforms. Clare will also be overseeing any enquiries and feedback that comes through, as well as engaging with the community and teaching practitioners. Clare will work to stay on top of changes and development in the Hairdressing and Barbering curriculum to make sure that the service evolves to meet the needs of our members.
