Vicky has been working in Further Education since 2007 when she joined as an Instructor. After completing her PGCE in 2011, she became the Head of Horticulture in 2014 and instigated the re-introduction of Agriculture to BCA’s provision offering.
Recently Vicky has completed a MSc in Agricultural Professional Practice and will soon be starting a Professional Doctorate in Education.
Her MSc project was an “Investigation into the educational viability of utilising farming simulator programs to teach tractor driving skills to further education learners”.
This project has also enabled the college to successfully receive Local Enterprise Partnership funding to purchase a Tenstar Simulator, which will enable Vicky to continue her study to see if the simulators can successfully help to reduce the driving skills gaps for FE learners.
Vicky is the Curriculum Director for land production, environment, and Apprenticeships at Windsor Forest Colleges group and is located at the BCA campus, near Maidenhead Berkshire.
Vicky is keen to inspire the land-based learners of the future.
