I am Josephine Outhwaite and I have been a trustee of the EOA for over two years. As an exams officer I am a member of the customer and student support team with an alternative learning provider in the commercial sector based in our northern office.

I am extremely passionate in representing the interests not only of exam officers outside the mainstream education system (as well as those within it) but also learners; I have seen students who are academically able and willing, educationally disenfranchised by a system too inflexible to accommodate them and would seek to improve this.
