Meet our Professional Tutor and Secondary Phase Lead


Jacqui Aldrich

Professional Tutor and Secondary Phase Lead

I have worked in education in a variety of roles for 14 years. Prior to joining the HITE team, I was an Assistant Principal and Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) in one of our Harris Academies in South London, Harris Greenwich, and prior to that I worked as a Design and Technology teacher in South London schools.  I thoroughly loved both roles. 

As the Secondary Phase Lead, I have responsibility for managing the secondary training provision, leading the secondary tutor team and supporting the Head of ITE, Shona Findlay. As a Professional Tutor, I also get to look after a group of secondary trainees while on placement in their academies and to train and liaise with mentors and Managing Mentors to support and develop them in their roles. 

One of the highlights I experience in my job is when visiting our academies and seeing so many of our Alumni in mentoring, middle, senior roles. I am humbled to have been a part of their development and am excited to continue in this role.
