Katherine Ireland

Programme Manager (Pastoral & Progression)

I’m Programme Manager for Pastoral & Progression, and Safeguarding Lead for the department. I also ensure those students who are looked after have an EHCP or additional needs are being supported in college. I head a team of lovely pastoral staff who deliver tutorial seasons and carry out 1-1s with all students, ensuring they are enjoying college and any barriers to their progress are identified and overcome. I love my job as every day is different and I feel I am making a positive difference to young people’s lives. The best thing about working in the engineering department is being part of a supportive team. Outside of work, I enjoy playing the drums, yoga, listening to records, reading crime thrillers, camping and gardening.
