The Foundation Learning department will have a new manager from September.

Shulamay Davis will become Head of Foundation Learning, taking over from Lisa Moynihan, who is taking on additional duties as a senior manager at the college.

Shula has a huge range of experience, and is looking forward to continuing Lisa’s work in preparing young people for adulthood and ensuring positive personal development.

“I’m delighted to have this opportunity,” Shula said. “I’m looking forward to working with students, families, employers, community partners and the fantastic team at Nescot to continue to improve outcomes for young people.

“It’s important to make sure our curriculum is relevant for our students, and gives them ‘real world’ experience. Students are motivated to learn when they can see a purpose and a result to their learning in class.”

Shula has a wide range of educational experience across a range of ages, from teaching mindfulness in nurseries and schools to teaching on the college’s teaching training programme.

She has also worked as a SENDCo, managed the SEN provision for Nescot’s 14-16 department, and is one of the college’s Digital Advocates.

Shula, who has a first-class honours degree in Education and an Outstanding grade for her PGCE, is also starting a Master’s degree in September in Applied Management.
