Director of Blended and Online Learning. Blended Learning Consortium, Heart of Worcestershire College
Amy moved into education after a career in the hospitality industry, specialising in wine. Her teaching career started at University College Birmingham where her interest in the use of emerging technologies within teaching and learning developed after wanting to find an alternative and engaging way of teaching wine studies to 16-18 year old students. This resulted in her developing Wine Find, a wine and food pairing app that achieved commercial success. Amy completed an MBA at Aston Business School with a thesis focusing on the innovation and commercialisation of digital learning resources. Amy was previously Director of Teaching and Learning Enhancement at UCB teaching across FE and HE, before moving to Heart of Worcestershire College in 2019 as the Director of Blended & Online Learning and leading the national Blended Learning Consortium. Amy also now leads the EdTech Demonstrator Schools and Colleges Programme on behalf of Heart of Worcestershire College.
