Programme Manager - Leading by Learning

After eight years away from Evaluation Associates, Sue has joined our team again, this time as a Programme Manager for the development of Leading by Learning.

Sue has a scientific background with a strong interest in data and evidence based thinking that guides her design and delivery of projects. She has also been an experienced facilitator in Assessment for learning, a leader in the Consortium for Professional Learning, and managed large data collection and analysis projects for the Ministry of Education. Her desire to be an excellent communicator has led her to work on Open-to-learning conversations at Evaluation Associates as well as completing courses with Viviane Robinson at University of Auckland.

Her enthusiasm for using data as evidence to solve problems of practice and her ability to communicate her ideas has led to her management of several large projects and she has a strong desire to continue to develop new skills.

Most recently, her enthusiasm for new experiences and travel led her to  the UK where she worked as a science teacher and head of assessment and reporting in a boys' prep school in London. Prior to this she was the Assistant Principal in a large secondary school in Auckland.

After three years in London, Sue has returned to her home town of Gisborne. She loves the water and especially enjoys the surf. She has a large garden which she loves although, it seems even larger since living in London. Although she loves to travel, she is looking forward to catching up more often with friends and family now that she is living in New Zealand again.
