Hannah Kirkbride

Through my role as a Trustee I seek to bring a Career Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) perspective. I am committed to improving social mobility and opportunities for all across education and industry. Close engagement, between industry, education and embedded digital technology brings unique opportunities to improve career outcomes for the individual as well as targeted support for the economy and skill shortages.  The capability of technology to provide solutions in education and vocational learning are only just beginning to be realised and to that end, I am delighted to be taking this role with Ufi who are driving the digital learning agenda.
