Being a member of the UCISA Support Services Group Committee gave me a greater understanding of how UCISA works with the HE and FE Sectors and my term as a UCISA Committee co chair not only gave me exposure to serving on their Leadership Council, but also gave me invaluable professional and personal skills development opportunities. This has helped me think more strategically in my “day job” and made me hugely proud to be able to contribute to UCISA, an organisation that are invaluable to the Education Sector.
