As one of the three  managers in the Widening Participation (WP) team, I and am responsible for issues concerning admissions and conversion, as well as being the main liaison between the WP team and the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. I oversee management of the Reach and Access to Creative Education in Scotland (ACES) projects and also co-ordinate the University's work with LEAPS (Lothians Equal Access Programme for Schools). I regularly liaise with colleagues in Admissions departments across the University with regards to WP policies and potential and current applicants.
