Learning & Events Officer
Lizz joined Children in Scotland in September 2021 as a Learning & Events Officer.
Previously, Lizz worked as a secondary school teacher in and around London. Starting her career with the Teach First Leadership development programme, aiming to tackle educational inequality in schools in England & Wales, her last teaching role was English Lead at a school in a low-secure psychiatric hospital for young people sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
This role further fuelled her keen interest in education, health and social welfare reforms, as well as deepening her experience of working with vulnerable children and those with additional educational needs.
She studied English & Scottish Literature at the University of Edinburgh and writes in her spare time.
