Kathleen

“I enjoy starting with a foundation of innovation, and grounding that in principles of scalability, sustainability and equity that can be applied across the NSW.”

Kathleen began her career as a teacher and is now Director, Futures Learning at the NSW Department of Education.

Having qualified as a secondary school teacher, Kathleen felt she could make the greatest impact by working in education management. This has allowed her to work towards improving the learning outcomes for all students, including those at schools, tertiary institutions and adult education.

Kathleen’s honed her expertise in the education management industry, including the design, planning, effective use and evaluation of physical and virtual learning environments. A highly accomplished career woman, she’s held roles at the European Union, UNESCO and the University of Sydney.

“I am now leading Futures Learning' research engagement with Universities, national and International partners, and partnerships with industry partners to support optimal education experiences for students.”

Kathleen has developed and implemented the Futures Learning Strategy encompassing support for innovative practice and professional learning opportunities for teaching staff in over 2,000 schools across NSW.

“I have led the development and delivery of professional learning offerings (aligned with current curriculum) that support students for an ever changing future.”

Despite having built an impressive international career, like most even Kathleen feels overwhelmed by how much of the world she has left to see. “I have seen a lot of the world through work and holidays. The more I see, the more that is uncovered that I haven’t seen.”
