A few words from Dr. Fern Chantele-Carter CMgr (FCMI)

Over my career I have had a strong link with SEND, through being a Governor of a SEND School, and working on the “sounds of intent” project devising the initial concept of the “P- levels” at UCL. Since then, I have been an advocate for provision, and have worked to ensure that qualifications are available for learners most recently at RSL Awards. I am thrilled to have been asked to be a trustee of SEND-unlocked and its game-changing directory and app.

Dr. Fern is a commercially astute strategic leader, with over 25 years of experience in education, covering all levels and a wide range of sector areas. Since completing her Doctorate in neuropsychopedagogy at Brunel University, she has worked at a Large Greater London FE College, and worked in the Education sectors, -at UCL on the Sounds of Intent project, at Gloucestershire University where she wrote an MA in Inclusive education, and a Senior lecturer on PGCE courses, and as a mentor for doctoral students at The Open University and Brunel University.

Within the Awarding Sector, Fern has been involved in the development of qualifications and assessments across a variety of sectors and subject areas and worked in quality assurance and compliance with a number of Awarding Bodies, including Ofqual, ABE, and REC and now RSL Awards. She is also active in providing input into policy directions in the four devolved nations. Fern is currently at the Internationally renowned Creative and Performing Arts Awarding Body RSL Awards. She is a Chartered Manager and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Managers, and is the Deputy Chair of their Regulatory and Compliance Board, along with being on a variety of organisations involved with Governance and Compliance.
