Pamela Cumming - Schools Engagement Officer

Pam’s role at the University has changed dramatically since she joined the University 30 years ago.  Having recently moved from the Business School to the PASE team Pam hopes to be able to continue to develop her relationships with our local Primary and Secondary schools across the City and Shire.   By delivering workshops in schools and having the young people visiting the campus for taster days Pam aims raise awareness and aspirations of our young people in local schools but also develop their employability skills in the process. For a list of the workshops Pam delivers please email her.

After her degree Pam has continued with many internal courses at the University, but has also undertaken some distance learning to include Marketing, Counselling, Veterinary Assistant  Diplomas.

Outside work she enjoys caravanning, dog walks, cold water swimming, photography, reading and socialising.
