Quality and Assessment Officer

Role and Responsibilities:

The main focus of Elizabeth's role is to co-ordinate the administration of assessment marks, feedback and results on all HE courses, applying the academic regulations in relation to mitigating circumstances and results, and to organise and provide secretarial support to the Board of Examiners. She is also secretary to the Academic Board and the Learning, Teaching & Quality Assurance Committee, ensuring that meetings are effectively organised and accurately recorded


Who Am I?

“The two things that have always felt instinctive to me are creating art and creating order – I have made visual art for as long as I can remember and have always enjoyed organisational tasks. Working at NSCD part time gives me the perfect balance of these two things; I get to fulfil a role that utilises my administrative strengths within a creative environment, whilst also allowing me to build my creative practice on my non-working days.  

Outside of work I have two young children and a dog to keep me busy! As a parent of a disabled child I have started to see the world from a different perspective and have a keen interest in inclusion and representation of people with different needs, particularly within the arts. My daughter loves to dance in her wheelchair and seeing her enjoying the Saturday School classes at NSCD is one of the highlights of my week!”

Career History

After graduating in 2010 Elizabeth completed an internship at Site Gallery in Sheffield, which sparked an interest in arts administration, followed by a short term contract as a Production Assistant for Point Blank Theatre Company. She joined NSCD in 2012 as Assistant Academic Administrator, providing broad administration support across the HE programmes. Her role has developed over the years to become focused on assessment administration in her current role as Quality & Assessment Officer.

She has continued her creative practice as a visual artist alongside her role at NSCD, spending time exploring different artforms before specialising in drawing in 2016. Whilst she works mostly on commission, she has also had artwork exhibited in galleries and art trails across Yorkshire and online, has been longlisted for two art prizes, and has had work featured in arts publications online and in print.
